ME THEN, ME NOW is about taking your old photos and re-creating them right now.
I am sure we’re all sentimental about our past and re-living it and seeing changes is just such a moving thing.
There’s really not much to it.
You pick a photo that you can possibly duplicate right now. You try to match up backgrounds and hairstyles and clothing.
It’s a lot more special if you manage to recreate a photo with someone from your past- your family, your friends.
I know most of us live away from our parents, which is what would make it more special.
When my mom was visiting one year, I made sure we did one photo together, and difference that time made is amazing!
That same day I managed to re-create one of my baby photos, as well
That’s sort of where it stopped for me, until this week. Because this week I want to challenge myself and everyone else to re-create their favorite childhood/youth photo from the past.
For more examples, please go to ME THEN ME NOW FLICKR GROUP, it has some AMAZING re-creations! I really suggest you look through it- the images are so great!
So this week I will attempt to re-create both or one of these photos ( me at 17 or me at 2: 10 years or 25 years later)
Not only am I looking forward to seeing how you all changed, but I cannot wait to see your old photos!
