I don't have a real idea where this needed to go, so I decided to put it in here. I hope it's the right place. It felt like the more appropriate one.

This was a special one. I came home and found out they've thrown a lot of old family photo's on the table. I'm crazy about these things, so I immediately dove in. Among the many many pictures I came across this one. I don't know who's in precisely, but I immediately recognized the location. So I tried something. I went out with the camera, and tried to take the picture at about the same location, only nearly 80 years later. I don't know why, but it gave this amazing feeling. Knowing that 80 years ago my family was sitting in the (nearly) exact same spot I was standing all those years later. It's really something special.

I've done the same thing.....going back to places where memorable things have taken place with family or friends. It is a neat feeling.

It's interesting to notice the changes in tree lines and buildings as well as how wildflowers have replaced hay.

Maybe you should enlist a few family members and revisit the location (with or without a pitchfork). It could make a haunting image.

I will go to the 1930's if I had to choose between 30's or 60's. Love it :)

That's pretty cool :)

I saw a series of pictures a year ago, maybe, that showed various locations in Europe during WWII with troops, and vehicles, and damaged buildings, with current images of the same locations from similar angles, same perspective, etc., side-by-side. Amazing stuff.
