Can't figure it out.

How the photog loused up this shot, that is. A straight on flash of two calm subjects with a still life, yet we have ghosting and see-through bodies.

[Flash didn't fire for the first exposure, so the photographer shot again with the same sheet, resulting in a faint double-exposure. -tterrace]

Thanks. That must be it! I wouldn't have thought that newspaper photographers on assignment would be so tight with film in 1958.

Luncheon setting

Indeed high class: Saltines and cigarettes!

Cigarette and a Cracker

Mid-century appetizers!

So That's Where

My mulch went?

Photo rules to live by

Don't waste that film!

Etiquette vs artistry

The Junior League might know exactly the right way to greet their guests, but their grasp of biology and/or art leaves a lot to be desired. That sheep is downright disturbing.
