Life imitating art

I was at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, when I saw a young woman take a picture of the lady in the painting on her cellphone. What drew my attention was how similar these two women looked, not just in the position of their hands, but in terms of facial features as well. I managed to capture this moment, which shows them somehow connected, though they are centuries apart.
