Sun being in zodiac sign Gemini just now, named for twin brothers Castor and Pollux in Greek mythology, there'll likely be some twininess around - here's a bit more of it, from husband's Flickr collection of vintage photographs, and photographs from his own camera:


“They were young; time hadn't yet rubbed at them, polishing their differences and sharpening their opinions...”
― Kate Morton, The Distant Hours

Two TWA connies

Twin TWA "Connies" (The Lockheed Constellation ("Connie") was a propeller-driven airliner powered by four 18-cylinder radial Wright R-3350 engines. It was built by Lockheed between 1943 and 1958.)

The vintage photograph (shown after the video) reminded husband of Charlize Theron, so he tried a morphing process - yep! Twinny!

And, lastly, twins in the news, not born with sun in Gemini - but word of them surfaced in Gemini-time:

(Reuters) - Rare twin giraffes were born this month at a nature preserve in Texas, marking only the second time that living twin giraffes have been born in the United States, the preserve said on Wednesday.

The babies were born on May 10 at the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch outside of New Braunfels, but the announcement was delayed because twins often do not survive, said Tiffany Soechting, the ranch's marketing director.
