SPC - 'Diptych' - #1

Another month brings another challenge theme for Self Portrait Challenge.

For the month of May, the challenge theme is: Diptych.

Diptych, literally, means "two folds" as I understand it.

Remember the type of photo frame that held two separate photos, but they were hinged together so they made a paired set? People put photos of two different kids or two favorite photos in it. I know my Parents still have one in their living room containing professional photos of my maternal and paternal grandparents.

Anyway that hinged photo frame is a sort of diptych. Basically, two separate photos put together for effect.

There are also triptychs and polyptychs (4 or more) which are allowed under the rules of the challenge theme.
