Two Sets Of Twins



I was intrigued by the blog A Photo A Day - Photos By Donald Kinney, and how he put together photos of similar items as juxtapositions the other day. As I was going through some of my stuff last night, I originally had the idea to put up a photo of the Melbourne Causeway, a bridge across the Indian River Lagoon between Melbourne, Florida and Indialantic, Florida, on the barrier island just off-shore from us. It's our closest access to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, and I love bridges.

But while looking around for the photo, I came across the photograph I took of a slide at one of the branches of the Brevard County Public Library. It's on a playground behind the library and near a beautiful pond there.

When I saw that second photo, it reminded me of the juxtapositions on A Photo A Day, and I thought I would put them together.

I love symmetrical things anyway, and like both of these photos.

Two widely different photos similar in symmetry. (As always, give 'em a click to enlarge.)

I like your choices -- they both funnel things somewhere. The photography is good too.

I came to thank you for visiting my blog yesterday. Today I show my wife, of 52 years, and President Bush's jet that is carrying his automobiles.

Very clever...and worthy of an engineer ;-)

After you mentioned it, I included a link on my post to show the Prez falling off a Segway!

Neat shots John. I like your choices of "twins". I really like the way you captured the causeway.

I have never been to that state park in Arkansas. I will have to look it up.

Take care.
