Looking Into The Past

Photo: XsuperflyX [Flickr]

In this Flickr pool titled Looking Into the Past, people hold out old pictures of their homes or neighborhods and overlap them with the current structures as background to create fascinating "then and now" collages.

At first I thought there was no way it was real, just some dandy Photoshopping. The closer I got though, I think they're legit, although a few are suspect. They are from different people, and looks like they all congregate on Flickr to share. Pretty rad. I'm so happy I don't have a stack of old photos from my neighborhood. I might not get anything done the next few days. "Why is that guy standing in the middle of the street taking pictures of his hand?"

These pictures have a Ghostly quality about them.- Like the past still somehow exists there and there is ... like a ...magic frame... that can give a peek into such pasts.

What incredible times do we live in.
