Then and Now

I thought I’d share this “Then and Now” I’ve done for a challenge on another site. I’ve had the “Then” photo sitting on my desk at home for a while now and had been meaning to create the “Now”; there always an excuse to put it off to another time… Seeing the photos by Irina Werning was the final push I needed to get out there and take the photo. I knew where the house was located, as I’d visited it a few years ago, so armed with camera, tripod and my husband as my assistant (and not a very good one, as he wasn’t as precise about the pose as I would have liked – hurumph!), we ventured to the inner city to take the photo. I’m wearing the same necklace around my neck, I tried to wear similar clothes (and in 30 degree plus day, that was a challenge), the light is all wrong and the garden has flourished since I lived there ~ but I think you get the picture!

I know we’ve seen Peter Hill’s Sets of Two – Photography A Century Apart – if you haven’t, then go and check it out. What I want to know, is have you tried to re-create a “Then and Now” of your own? If you have, I would love to see it! If not, then what are you waiting for? It’s a fun challenge!
