Natural resemblance VIII

Often, we come across images which have very little in common regarding their subject, yet which seem to be closely resembled. It is a sort of unintentional recollection, where retained images in our memory appear in newly encountered situations, phenomena, or objects. Some might call it Déjà vu - as an anomaly of memory, which creates a distinct impression that an experience is "being recalled". Subconsciously similar motifs draw one's attention. Individual elements of compositions, or colour combinations, all bring deeply embedded memories of past experiences.
