Although most modern Polaroid cameras are designed to prevent double
exposures, if you know what you are doing you can rig any of them
to do it.  It's not necessarily simple, but could be done.  If you
didn't know how but had the money, there are technicians who specialize
in modifying cameras in a wide variety of ways.  So, in theory, the
Polaroid photos Ed took could be double exposures.

On the point of the reflection, I think Bruce has given a detailed
explanation of that point, so I will await the posting of his argument.

The problem with photographic evidence, particularly still photos, is
that ANY photo could be faked.  But just because something could be, that
doesn't mean that it is.

I've been studying some photos taken in Mexico by Carlos Diaz, and I have
to say that they are pretty damned convincing.  Could they have been
faked?  Of course.  Were they?  How can anyone other than the photographer
know?
