Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #69: Seeing Double

Something happens when two people look at each other, and they have a cellular connection. It’s like when their hearts connect as well as their souls.~Costa Ronin

Tina’s theme this week challenges us to find “double” subjects.  All right, Tina.  Here goes. 

My first shot was taken during Open House Chicago, a great autumn tradition, when hundreds of buildings are open to the public throughout the city.  Some of them, like the women’s waiting room at Union Station, have not been open to the public for decades.  This shot, taken at Goodman Theater, was a dress rehearsal for that night’s performance.  Being graced at birth with two left feet, I always admire people who can move with fluidity and passion, like this couple.

You don’t build walls; you build bridges between people. ~Andrew Cuomo

Some of you may recognize this view of the two bridges from our former apartment in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The wider bridge on the left is open to traffic;  the one on the right is pedestrian only.   The views of the sky and river were spectacular at sunset–as you can see.

Architecture begins when you place two bricks carefully together.~Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

This capture of two doorways brings back great memories of Lisbon, Portugal.   The guard is on duty at the GNR General Command site.

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”~Abraham Lincoln
The Etruscan museum in the small town of Fiesole, Italy is a real treat.  Here, you can see the base of two amphoras used to store wine.  We can thank the Etruscans for teaching the French and the Romans about winemaking.

You can’t measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.~Milan Kundera

I spotted this couple in the Museum of Fine Art in Boston and loved their style–her tee shirt and matching socks and his slouch hat.  I wondered if they were also artists.

It was fun seeing double, Tina!  Thanks for this week’s theme.

    • Hi, Viveka. Thank you! I’m collecting shots wherever we go! The bridges were a “fixture” out my window for the years we lived there. We were so high up that I felt like we were in a plane coming in for a landing!

      • Patti, so do I … put the camera on nearly everything and a couple of time too on the same object. What a fantastic view you had … and I understand what you mean about coming in for landing. Brilliant shot.

  2. Well chosen gallery, Patti. Love that Michigan image of the bridges, and the serenity of the two last shots. Also applaud the starter and the finisher for knitting the post together nicely!.

  3. I love the photos you chose for the prompt. I’m thankful for wine too ;-)! I especially enjoyed your Chicago photos – my youngest lived there while she went to the Art Institute for her BFA. I concur with you – those two in the last photo were likely artists, at least I saw many creative outfits like that when we’d visit my daughter at school events.

  4. Great photographs selected for the challenge, Patti. I’m with Tina the outfit on the woman in the last photo
    is quite fashionable. I like the way you captured them. I’m not sure how you did it. I’m always hesitant to photograph people
    if I don’t know them. 5 stars for a unique pic.
