I love a good “then and now” photo scenario!
I’m beginning to think that it is because the years seem to be flying by me that I remember events from last year or many years ago just like I have a “photographic” memory. Or maybe it is because I do have a photographic memory! A weird scrapbookers kind of photographic memory 😉
With all the images I’ve taken, comes such a visual reminder of events that have happened or people in my life that I have photographed. I am sure you feel exactly the same. In recording events and the people around us, we literally do lock in memories that stick.
I can pretty well tell you what month certain things happened in our lives, simply because that is how I organise the photos in my photo library! Think of an event and I can probably tell you what album, and therefore the year and month and possibly what is on the front cover of that album too!
(You would have to know a fair bit about our lives in order to ask that question – but you get the idea!!!)
I am sure you are able to do the same thing, or something similar. Photos are so cool like that 🙂
So my latest “then and now” is all about Annabelle. Two and a half years ago, she had her four 12 year old molars extracted (I got photos of those and I knew it was April 2011) Two years ago, she had braces put on and at the time, it was anticipated that they would be on her teeth for three years. Just this week (five days short of two years later) the braces came off and we now have a fabulous series of before and after photos … a classic then and now!
