Two of a Kind along my travel ways

Seeing double? No, but seeing two of a kind is often funnier than seeing only one. Scenes are more dynamic, and we can often even imagine a story… ** Click on the images for a larger better view!

In the animal world for instance, there will always be a kind of dialog or an action.

… and between two individualsΒ  things can happen πŸ˜‰

This is the case of two swans at mating time on the Rhine River in Germany. Were they fighting or doing a mating ritual? Not sure, but I’m tempted to think about the second possibility. I called the image “Nuptial Dance”

On the other hand two pairs of eyes can be more convincing than just one. What do you think about two kittens, begging to be taken home? Hard to resist right?

I photographed a couple of Elks in Newfoundland, Canada. They were somehow irritated by my presence. I could almost hear them saying something like: “Let’s go dear, paparazzi are here!” πŸ™‚

Well, I’m under the Gemini sign, therefore a very sociable person, but I can understand that sociability can only go so far… Ha, ha!

Kids and People

This is a photo of a Mexican father getting his son accustomed with handling the reins of a horse. I found the scene quite touching… * This father and child photo is one of my all time favorites πŸ™‚

Other bigger kids can have very serious discussions like these two in Bocas del Toro, Panama. I made it as a digital photo illustration in Norman Rockwell style for a photo contest. It is also available as art prints for kids in my Fine Art America Galleries, along with other similar ones.

On another level, when there are two workers, the job gets easier. I photographed these Fearless Sky Workers in Panama City, Panama:

Photographing Two Things of a Kind

Two things can create the expectation of something that can happen, like this wine bottle and glass. Well, they are not exactly the same kind, but closely related πŸ™‚ Here we go… a good example of “Layers” in photography πŸ™‚

Here are two rowboats bumping into each-other while floating on moving water of the Atlantic Ocean in Nova Scotia

The symmetry of reflection also create beautiful double content in images. I really like this one I took at Flaming Gorge Reservoir:

Another double image I like is this bike sign in Halifax Nova Scotia, reflected in a bike repair shop

  1. What a shame you couldn’t find any examples of twosomes Tatiana πŸ˜€πŸ˜€! These, as always, are really terrific and cover every base! My favorites I think are the rowboats and the kittens
