Photo Blogging for Dummies.

Since no one read the previous post and only went gaga over the pictures, heres one more.

Heres how to do it.

1. Find yourself jobless. When the older one is in school, younger one is napping and the husband in traveling. Or you can just shut yourself in the bedroom while the above mentioned threesome are wrestling in another room like I did.

2. Go through the older ones baby photos and narrow down on the ones where you have still kept the outfit.

3. Dress up the younger one in the said outfit while convincing the jealous older one that its an old dress!

4. Position the subject of the photo in the same way the older one has posed. Try to take the photos in the one second that the subject keeps the pose.

5. If the older one is willing, use her as a prop to make the subject look up, look down, look here, look there, etc...

6. Click. click. click.

7. Make a collage of the old and the new photos to generally confuse the hell out of people.

8. Dont forget to send it to the target audience - the grand parents.

9. Blog about it, of course!

10. Ta da!

I first figured the top middle is Ashu and the bottom middle is Antu, and it seemed all the rest are Antus - then I thought there should be more Ashu. I worked as deligently as solving "Aaru vithyaasangal" (in kumudham or vikatan?) and tada I realized as you had described three poses are replicated! OOH went my brain and then I realized all top ones are Ashu! Even though they seemed so different in the last blog photos, here they look so alike!

With twins in hand, with extremely different personalities, dancing to their tunes, I am getting split (mother) personality disorder myself! :))) ...

The photos are so good (And inspiring! :) for similar ideas)

I have a girl and a boy...but what the heck..I dressed my boy in his sister's dresses and clicked to glory when I was super vetti. Now, no one is able to tell which photo is the girl and which one is the boy (both resemble each other a lot when they were below 2)

Thank you all delurkers and for the comments.
As Madura said, the top row is Ashu and the bottom row is Antu. People who said they are inspired, I need proof. Send in the reports please! :)
