A memory is a photograph taken by the heart...to make a special moment last forever...and of all the memory-pictures that happy times can bring, the best are those that families make together ~

The "Past is Present" Photo Challenge ~

My daughter on her first day of school at our front door Then and Now, she will be teaching children in 2011.

This was not an easy project to do, I do now know what, Vickie, at Photos by BeNotForgot was experiencing! This was the best out of many photos I took in every way I could muster . . .  and with two different Canon cameras. This will take a bit more practice but for now, I am using this one for the photo challenge  The Past is Present: Genealogy Photo Challenge For World Photography Day that, Denise Levenick issued to us geneabloggers, genealogists, and family historians on her blog, The Family Curator. 

Here's how you can participate ~

The Family Curator is issuing a challenge to geneabloggers, genealogists, and family historians! Celebrate genealogy and family history for World Photography Day August 19 by combining the past and present in a photograph. You might want to recreate an old photo or bring the past to the present day in DearPhotograph style.
Post your photograph with descriptive caption on your blog and send the link to The Family Curator no later than 6am PST 15 Aug 2011. I will post a round-up article of contributions on or before August 19, World Photography Day.
Get creative and have fun!


  1. Gini! What a wonderful rendition for the Challenge. I love the combined photo and then the two, past and present. And how great that your daughter is Back to School once again.

    Thank you so much for joining in the fun, friend.

  2. Fun then-and-now pic! Doesn't the time go fast??

  3. Thank you, Carol, Denise and Jasia . . . this was definitely a challenge but a fun one! It was hard to keep everything in focus and the final result above was the best out of the bunch. I do have much to learn!
