Dear Photograph

I stumbled across this gem of a website yesterday. The premise is that you take an old photograph and hold it up in the same location today to see how it's changed. Their tagline is "take a picture of a picture from the past in the present". It's only been going on a month or so, but I LOVE it. It has quickly become one of my favorite stops in my journeys around the world wide web.

I'm thinking about doing this at my parents' house in Connecticut when I'm home for Christmas. Now I just have to find the right embarrassing photo...

Some favorites:

Dear Photograph, Thank you for everything we had.

Dear Photograph, Thank you for reminding me of how lucky I am to have my Dad.

Dear Photograph, Her love was my chemo. I beat cancer.

Dear Photograph, When will I have this much swag again?

  1. Hi Sarah, It's Amy (Massie) I found your blog through facebook. I hope you don't care if I linked it to my blog - it helps me stay updated :) I love the photograph site, such a great idea. I'm going to look through my old photos now and find one to repeat. Also, you have a lovely style of writing. I look forward to reading. Now if I could update my blog more often I wouldn't feel guilty when I visit friends' blogs that update all the time :)
