Dear Photograph: An art & history project

I love picture blogs like Awkward Family Photos, and Cake Wrecks. They’re those faithful blogs that I can visit and have a chuckle.  I also love Post Secret and was inspired by this particular Zefrank post, from 52 to 48 with love.

Here’s one that my darling husband shared with me recently that is more of the inspiring-tear-jerking sort – Dear Photograph.

The concept is to take an old picture and put it in front of your camera in the same location it was taken years ago. There is something haunting and beautiful about many of these images.  Check it out!

I’d like to have the OTB Homeschoolers do this all over our town in cooperation with our historical society.  Maybe for a summer project in conjunction with a Waymarking walking tour.  It is, at it’s heart, a good art lesson too!
