Double Tap: The Family Acid

The Family Acid

combining two of my favourite things: vintage photos and Instagram, The Family Acid shares 40 years of film photography shot by Roger Steffens, and curated by his daughter Kate. love his double exposures, and often hilarious snaps like this one, “The day mom and her friends did acid and went to Disneyland. They never made it in past the parking lot. Anaheim, CA, 1976.”

i’ve been neglecting my Double Tap duties, mostly because i haven’t followed anyone new on Instagram in a while, but i’m looking to change that, especially with their recent app update (which makes it easier for you to discover cool new photos and people). and if you are too, then here’s a great one for ya: The Lion & The Lady. aka local photographic couple Leon & Marilet van Rooyen.
