A friend of mine shared a link to a creative photography blog by the name of "Dear Photograph," a project for which people submit a current photo of an old photo superimposed over the now changed old photo's location. If you don't follow what I just said, you should check out the website to get a better understanding.
It's a clever idea; an idea that seems to have connected many people to their own pasts. I find myself drawn to the idea of picking out an old photo from my childhood and seeing how the place has changed. Some people see what they have gained over the years, but most seem to reflect on what they have lost. What would you find by comparing yesterday with today?
