Friday Foto Friends

I am joining with Debbie for Friday Foto Friends with some off the beaten path photos.

Here is one of a grandmother and her granddaughter showing how genes pass from generation to generation. You may look like a former relative you never met
When I see the "Little"  I am looking at my own face. It is uncanny.  Here she is and I have to find one of me at a similar age but, yeah, this is my face too. Family do a double take when they see her photos. Is it me or her?
This photo of her was taken about 5 years ago when she was 4. 
Below is my daughter and her paternal grandmother in Salt Lake City.
 If you are thinking "wow, she is a tall girl" you would be very wrong. My daughter is barely 5'1". Grandma is only 4 ft something tall! They are both very tiny.  At 5'5" or so I tower over both of them!
But I can see the family relationship in their faces.

The tall white building in the rear is the Salt Lake LDS temple. They were in downtown Salt Lake visiting nearby.

 I am amazed that while my daughter and I look quite alike, I can also see her father and his mother in her face.

Finally a photo of the salt marshes in winter, late autumn because I love this so much and must share it often!

Thank you Debbie ,for the opportunity to share and make new friends.


  1. I'm a big fan of your artwork...this header is wonderful !Love the "bottle-green" of the crashing wave !
    The article content is startling...how cool is that- to look so much like someone else ?!?
    Be well , my friend !

  2. What an uncanny resemblance the split photo is! My daughter says that people have told her that she and I look like each other. "Little" is adorable and I can see some resemblance between her and you. Have a blessed day.

  3. That split photo is just awesome. I want to do that with one of me and our daughter. Love your header painting....especially the red bird. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your photos. Sorry I'm late to visit.

  4. Such a cool photo showing the resemblance of two different people! And how amazing that your granddaughter has features that look like you! Loved the picture of your daughter and her grandmother too. And the mud marsh is lovely too, in autumn, a beautiful season. Happy to visit with you today, have a great week!

  5. I so love all the pictures you always share, darling, precious Annie, and this topic has always fascinated me so much, thank you for dealing with it today !

    Hope your new week is off to a great start,
    I'm sending hugs and ever much love to you

    Xx Dany

  6. What a wonderful post about the resemblance of family members. I hear it all the time about how much I look like my father's younger sister. Both have passed many years ago but still family members tell me how I look like their "mom" or "aunt". You have a beautiful family Annie. Thanks for sharing with us.

  7. Hi Annie, I hope you are doing well! I enjoyed your pictures today! Hugs

  8. Amazing photos ...especially the one of the grandmother and granddaughter side by side...uncanny resemblance! You are a gifted artist and photographer...and writer! Blessings to you today!


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
