A few months ago I wrote the post about similarities in photos taken by different photographers. I pondered that similarities could occur both intentionally and unintentionally. The post has eventually won some popularity, at least compared to my other ones.
Recently my friend, an American photojournalist Amanda Rivkin posted the heart-wrenching text dedicated to the memory of two photojournalists, Chris Hondros and Tim Hetherington, killed in Libya on April 20, 2011, while covering the civil war there. In her post she used likeness of some of her and Chris’s photos. Kudos, Amanda, for such a great post and last tribute to the two great photojournalists!
Meanwhile, another friend of mine came across a photo, that amazingly resembled one taken by me in Georgian mountains:

When I saw this photo from Torioi Festival, once again I was amazed how unexpectedly, and independently from the photographer, a picture pattern repeats sometimes.
Below are some more examples of similarities from my portfolio.
