Twins are rare. Unless you are a member of my family and then they are not. Which always has made seeing doubles of things something to be noticed, observed, and appreciated.
Of course this pair of trees was plan/ted to be a set of twins.
The same, yet slightly different.
Backlit by the morning sun, they created shadows that reached out to me as if to play.
Out of focus images are not usually top picks for this category, but this one hits me in such a painterly way. It could be because the entire photograph is evenly out of focus. It could be the lighting, or the out of focus faces … I don’t know why, I just know that as soon as I took this image I liked it.
So does it matter if you like it? Nope.
My friend B. and I were having coffee at the Elmwood Cafe in Berkeley last week when he was visiting from Britain, and we both had our cameras out, capturing little moments. It was fun shooting the same things, but in different ways, comparing our shots, angles, and compositions.
