Whether two of a kind or ten, give us subjects that are in sync with one another — show us partnerships.

Bologna, Italy. The Basilica of San Petronio. A balmy June evening. While I worked on my second gelato of the day, a Bolognese gentleman and his miniature canine doppelgänger strolled through the piazza on what I assume was their nightly constitutional (or, for an Italian, a passeggiata), pausing on the basilica steps for some people watching.

man and dog

The two of them were perfectly in tune: the man looked left, the dog looked left. The man looked right, the dog looked right. The man shifted to find a more comfortable position, the dog scooted alongside. After ten minutes or so, it was time to move on; the dog trotted away at the man’s heel. No leash needed — they were in step (and there are no cars in the piazza). Passeggiata partners.

This week, share an image of partners. A pair, a trio, a sextet; people, buildings, plants — whatever you choose to shoot, give us subjects that are in tune with one another.

  1. It was a painting of two women showing one one of them affectionally pinching the nipple of the other while having a bath. I saw it displayed in one of the rooms of Château de la Bourdaisière in the commune of Montlouis-sur-loire, France.

    But partners in love they were not.


  2. I receive information in 3’s. Your “doppelgänger” is the 3rd to reach me at the end a two week period. I have been told all my life, “I know someone who looks just like you.” I am 64-years-old now, and there can not be 1000+ gals that are my doppelgänger.


    1. Pingbacks frequently fail for self-hosted sites; we’ve not yet been able to identify why it happens. I’ll pass your URL along to the developer who’s been investigating — the more failures we know about, the more likely we are to figure the issue out.
