...And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border....turn thou me and I shall be turned; for thou art the Lord thy God...
Jeremiah 31:17-18

This is another experiment with two different self-portraits, shot at the same spot. My self portrait on the right you can see by itself below this image that I used for my daily diary series, however, I turned it around to fit in with my self portrait on the left.. Interesting technique and it gives a whole new perspective to the frozen dahlia.

    Twins. I love it!! That trick is cool for photos that just seem to be backwards. Here, you have created a very cool SP.

    Did you always want a twin sister? Excellent work, Andrea; and beautiful shots. Great diptych.

    Thanks to all for comments...Judy you asked did I always want a twin sister? No, actually I am blessed that I have one sister who just turned 69 years old yesterday..Two of our brothers passed away at young ages...One was 5 years old who died after our families house burned down in January of 1951...He was two years younger than me...The other brother died in 1972 at age 35 as a result of choking to death on a piece of meat..He was autistic and had been in mental institutions from the time he was five years old...Life has its tragedies but we have to count the blessings!
