The Twins



Joy on the left and Amy on the right are identical twins whom I frequently see around town.  Joy puts out a West Hartford lifestyle magazine and Amy is a massage therapist.  When I see them together I can tell them apart, but if I ran into just one on the street, I am not sure I could figure out who it is.

Sometime I want to pose them next to a reflective surface.  Reflections of twins?  Four at once?  That would be fun.

The theme for September for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Pink."  To participate, link your post on September 1 to the CDP theme day page.

I am belatedly linking this to Weekend Reflections, because, after all, identical twins are reflections of each other, don't you think?

To distinguish the two you need only look at who wears the hat, but it can be problematic when the two change their outfit :)
Two nice and happy ladies.

Kate said...

Could their hair styles be a clue to their identity? Joy's seems much different than her sister's.

At least they don't dress the same! All your portrait subjects have lovely smiles.

Luis Gomez said...

Great capture Jack. Beautiful shot!

Lowell said...

Their glasses and jewelry are different...and the hat, of course...otherwise they really do alike! Which is the point of identical twins. Nice portrait(s)!

Birdman said...

Intrigued by aging twins.

Twins (and triplets etc) have always fascinated me! Lovely smiles!

VP said...

Jack, this a strike of genius: a reflection without a reflecting surface! Love your portraits of the almost identical ladies...

VP said...

'Stroke of genius' would be better...

Malyss said...

Twins are a funny mystery. I'd really like to see them together in a reflection!

Sylvia K said...

I think your reflection idea is terrific, you should try to do that. Lovely young women and beautiful smiles! Great shot for the day, Jack, as always! Enjoy your weekend!

Sharon said...

Wonderful portrait. Great idea on the reflection shot. That would be fun.

JM said...

Great twin smiles! :-)

William Kendall said...

Terrific portrait.

I have cousins who are twins, identical, Robert and Paul. In adulthood, they're not quite as identical- one's taller and leaner. I do have to remind myself which is which...

Kay said...

Funny! You manage to find reflections everywhere!

There was a pair of twins in San Francisco - older ladies - who dressed alike - rather flamboyantly and went everywhere together. They were a real icon. One passed away not too long ago. But for decades anyone walking around the downtown streets of S.F. could hear mention of "the twins" and know who it was.

RedPat said...

I want to see that reflection! They are really identical and could pass for the sister of someone I know - weird.

Viera said...

Absolutely true.....wonderful portrait...

Joan Perry; Sidewalk Curator said...

Twins are so fascinating. Perfect reflection shot!

Kay said...

Yes! The Brown twins! I hope you found pictures of them. They were quite a sight to behold!

Randy said...

Wonderful shot and smiles.

Great portrait Jack. Just remember when you run into them separately, Amy wears a hat :)

Bob Crowe said...

I think I can see some differences in the muscle tone and lines on the faces, but it's a good thing they don't wear identical glasses.

Norma Ruttan said...

aren't you the clever one? and unique too! I was the same way with twins in my classes. Thank goodness their personalities set them apart!

Andy said...

Those two big smiles that twins have make this a feel good photo.

'Tsuki said...

That a funny "relfection" indeed... Quite a perfect mirror... Well played, Jack !

biebkriebels said...

An original way of reflection, nice portrait.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

That nifty fifty is sooooo good, you too Jack :)

Amy B Mel. said...

Oh my gosh this is great! Thank you for all the comments, I feel the love, and I'm sure Joy does too!! Thanks Jack!

Ruth Kelly said...

You are absolutely right and if their hair was the same length, it would be hard to know which was which.

Oh, you can not go wrong.
