Not quite black and white

Some time ago after a cry to all friends and relatives I am looking for old film cameras I got an almost brand new Smena

Now the specifics of a Smena is that there is absolutely no way to find out what the speed and aperture should be set to. The film advance mechanism is very funny where you rewind the film until you think you have rewind enough. Guesstimation to the max!

What happens you end up with a few shots getting overlaid. 

I actually love all of them. Technique aside I have a feeling 'art' happens when you don't think about it, you let go of too much thinking and let Fortuna & Inspiration do their job.
