Free Image Tuesday is Here!! It's Here! It's Here!!!...

I have been SO excited to show you the FIT this week!!! I purchased a grouping of tintype photos a month ago and really did not get around to looking closely at them until last week. Once I started examining them I found two gemtype photos that were so beautiful and striking to me that I knew they had to be FITs.
These two gals look so much alike that I know they are closely related. The older lady could be her Mother or it may be her Grandmother.

Or....
I like to believe that they are the SAME person at two different times in their life. So I took them to Photoshop and transposed the images on top of one another and WHOA! The left eye matches perfectly! Perfectly, like they are EXACTLY the same right down to the gleam in their eyes. It totally looks like they are the same. I am sure they are not because it is obvious that these photos were taken in the same time period and at the same sitting. But, it is fun to pretend!

Hey Marsha! Thanks for the cheek compliment, but that's how the tintypes came to me. The photographers of that time period usually pinked in the cheeks of the portrait subjects male and female. Their cheeks are REALLY rosy, but I love them:)
Love, Jamie

What lovely pictures, Jamie! They are in such good shape. I think the ladies are mother and daughter. At the time those pix were taken the mother was apt to have kids spread out for about 20 years. My mother was 20 years older than her only sister. There were lots of boys in between.
