Photo In a Photo for Beautiful Nostalgia via “Dear Photograph” [Oh. That's Good.]

The best ideas are simple. And they often make me think, “Why didn’t I think of that?”  The elegant idea is this: Take a picture of a meaningful old photo and frame it exactly where that old photo was taken. See these beauties from “Dear Photograph” below.  Visually it tells the story of time and growth.  Verbally, each short caption brings context and heart.  So good.

The background: I saw this via ABC’s nightly national news.  Who knew Diane Sawyer could dedicate some of that valuable airtime for such a great creative idea.  It’s also crowdsourcing art at its best. It’s no surprise the site uses the Tumblr platform, a great place to accept submissions from the public.  I’ve used this same platform for my own crowdsourced website Asians with Bowl Cuts!
