Sepia Saturday 165: Who are those people?

It's very sad that nobody knows who these people were. As I looked into their faces for clues,  I started to think that the man looks ever so slightly like Danny Kaye. Use a little imagination - look at the hairline - maybe he could be an uncle or a cousin?


As I pondered this possibility,  I remembered that street artist I saw last year in Italy. I was positively gob smacked when I looked back at my photos and saw the picture he was painting. Is it Danny Kaye? or the father of our family?

On a recent visit to Norway I noticed this woman looking through a window and remembered her. She's a bit haunting and looks very much like the Mom in our photo.





Even the cats picked up on a certain something because I noticed them gazing at the television the other day. The little boy looked familiar......




A fleeting recognition of the three of them was gnawing at my brain. I went to bed last night wondering and worrying about why I felt somehow that I'd seen that photo somewhere before. Woke up in the middle of the night with one of those AHA moments. Vladimir Putin's conference room! I checked it out this morning and there they sat, the three of them, at the head of the table calmly watching the proceedings. I noticed in passing that the man could also be sort of related to Vladimir. Or had I spent too much time gazing into this families eyes?
And didn't I see them once in a museum somewhere? Where was that anyway? Everybody seemed to be gravitating toward their photo.


Well, thanks to the magic of Photofunia this family of unknowns has been transported into some familiar surroundings which makes them seem to me a little less distant and disconnected from the rest of the world - at least for this blog, in this moment and for one magical Sepia Saturday.

  1. How clever of you to have discovered the identities of our unknown family. That is, of course, the ultimate goal of sharing those photos; hoping that someone will identify them! Photofunia must be a magical tool indeed and it looks like you had oodles of photo fun ya'self. A perfect Sepia Saturday post.

  7. You really had me going there. I was so amazed at the likeness of that painting of the street artist. When I got to the next photo I thought "but Helen doesn't do photo shop." Then you gave it away. I still don't see how you did the museum photo. How did you insert the photo with all those people in the way? Amazing. I'm going to need a lesson.

  14. Clever, I thought that Alan had set a clone gene loose and his images were being reproduced on every flat service before launching themselves on the human race.

    I wonder if Putin has any relationship with Ras Putin?
