Ruby Tuesday & Sepia Scenes 28: Soulmates

Thursday, April 30, 2009
What a relief, it is finally raining! The last two days have been extremely hot here and made me feel more difficult going through all the things to get done. But you know that I try to keep my spirits high. I'm so glad that by the arrival of this rain, I have also come to some spare time. Yippee!

Now let me take you to my past. You can see the photos of me and my husband, when we were still toddlers. I really love these photos, because they were taken at very distant places on the same time line. My family was still in Germany (My parents met there when studying abroad, but that's another story), while my husband's family was in Indonesia. I like the thought that we were sitting on these tables meant to be future soul mates... Well, I better stop myself and spare you from the rest of my sentimental thoughts.

I have added no effects to these photos, since they already appeared to be reddish brown. Hopefully they suit Sepia Scenes and a very late Ruby Tuesday. Have a great day, everybody!

Both memes thanks to Mary

Enjoy your weekend!

How sweet that you've got two similarly posed shots, taken half a world apart.

We're just getting into the dry season here in Israel. It isn't likely to rain again until at least November!

I smile endlessly reading the history linking to your romantic past. The colour is just perfect. And lucky you were able to keep some old photographs in very good condition. Thanks Rosidah for your many wonderful comments in my blogs.

It's been raining here too, from 4pm til now. It was a relief for us too coz it was already so irritating. I couldn't even dare to blink to prevent from perspiring too much, hahaha...Those sepias look great, so classic result. Cool.

Wonderful photographs! The ones of you and your husband are such treasures. And it's very good to be sentimental about such things :)
It's raining here in Northern Virginia (USA). We have also had some hot weather but it was cooler today and yesterday earlier on. I am not sure what the temperature was in your part of the world. Here it was in the low 90s (farenheit) and very humid. Have a great weekend.

What sweet and wonderful photos of you two soulmates.
Such a coincidence that you and your husband posed in such similar ways as babies.

Amazing, actually!

Thanks for sharing your story.
