Look Alikes


Yesterday was National Donut Day! To celebrate such occasion, my boyfriend, Ben, and I, stood in line at Voodoo Donuts and when it came our turn, bought a Portland cream (round, chocolate donut with a custard-filled center), a voodoo doll (a donut in the shape of a voodoo doll with jelly in the center), a donut with peanut butter and Oreos, another peanut butter and chocolate covered bear claw donut, and a butterfingering (round donut with Butterfinger bits all over it)! On our walk home, we held hands, and as we passed one group of people, a guy yelled, "So how far are you guys apart?"

"How far?" I asked, though I knew he was talking about age. I knew the joke he was about to make.

"Like your mom and dad, how far apart did they have you guys?" And we all burst out laughing.

That was the second time that day that Ben and I were told/mistaken for being related.

Our similarities. They're fun to make light of. And no, there's no relation (that I know of). ;) Besides, you know, being two KICK ASS individuals.

Tomasz Wieja: Wieja plays with texture by blurring and overlapping photographs. Many of his pieces feel dreamy, warped, and hypnotic because of the techniques he uses, which provides an interesting perspective that not many other photographers give. The colors Wieja uses are also vibrant, highlighting the dreamy, hypnotic qualities of the images even more.
