    There is a pic where the beatles album is vivid. The person facing us appears to be singing, and someone else where we can only see their back in the pic is wearing a blue shirt with white straps. Well could it be this person without the pigtails because i noticed the same kind of strap on the shoulder area in this pic also. Don't know if blue shirt has breasts or a open top. Could Alcala have got them to act out something kinky, and thats why some poster say they see a doll.

    The photo is what is called double exposure. There are film photographers out there who attempt to do this and come up with some beautiful photos. In a case like this where the bottom part doesn't add anything to the image, it is obviously because the film wasn't advanced properly. Here are a couple of examples. You can see that the film/photo is "off" because you can see the brown line above her head of the previous photo...just a small slice. In this roll of film, his photos would have all be double exposure after this one of this girl since once it gets off, it can't be reset unless he did so in a darkroom so as not to expose the rest of the roll to the light. I don't see any mystery really in this photo. It looked like he caught her off guard and her eyes were closed. Squinting in the sun is more believable to me than anything else.
