Photos of two relatives blended together to show both similarities and differences. Interesting.

I am going to try that.
On my profile I have put a picture of my sons head on the shoulders of my MGF which to me show a likeness between them.

DS has a nose from his PGMs side of the family but the rest of his face is like my mums and her father. I find them very similar.

How do they DO that? Fascinating!

I see the likeness, Nellie. One day, as I was coming downstairs, I glanced at a picture of my dad as a child and suddenly saw my second GS, although dad was dark haired and brown eyed, and GS is blue eyed and fair-ish. My father's cousin once remarked that as I got out of the car, he could see my mother but by the time I got to the door of his house, he could see my father! Here's Hardy on the subject.


I am the family face;
Flesh perishes, I live on,
Projecting trait and trace
Through time to times anon,
And leaping from place to place
Over oblivion.

The years-heired feature that can
In curve and voice and eye
Despise the human span
Of durance -- that is I;
The eternal thing in man,
That heeds no call to die.

Thomas Hardy

I think I could do the same with DGS and my dad. No baby photos of my dad. DGS still has very much a baby face but I will try .
