Our new summer intern sent me the link to this website: Dear Photograph. It is amazing! So what is it? Well, we all have photos from years ago---maybe photos of our parents traveling through Europe when they were young or photos of the family reunion in front of the grandparent's house during the holidays. So these photographers took those old photos and matched them up perfectly with a present day photo, in the exact same location. They then imposed the old photo as an overlay. The website describes the technique as "taking a picture, of a picture, from the past, in the present." Actually, this would be a great hobby for Foreign Service families as you travel the world---I think it'd be fun and a great way to preserve memories.
