In modern times, the term “doppleganger” means someone who looks like you. It is said there are 8-10 other people in the world that look like you, no matter who you are. I haven’t met or heard about my own doppleganger, but take a look at this:
My daughter, Becca, is in the top picture in the center, wearing brown overalls. When she was in high school, she came home from school one day and told me that other students in her class noticed that she looks like Tatiana, daughter of Czar Nicolas, in the a picture that was in their world history books. She showed it to me, and I do have to agree that they look alike. The hair, the posture, and the look on face that I have seen many times, all look the same. Tatiana is standing behind her father in the picture on the bottom.
For a closer look, here is another photo, this time with just the two of them. Becca is in the photo on the top, Tatiana is in the photo on the bottom:
Add to this photo evidence the fact that my grandfather was from Russia, and you might think that these two could be related in some way. Either way, cue Twilight Zone music…
What do you think? Does my daughter resemble Tatiana? Do you have a doppleganger? Have you ever met someone who looks like you?
