I love before & after shots.
There’s something inherently cool about being able to duplicate a photograph from the past, to see what the differences are between the old and the new. I did exactly that a couple of years ago, when I came across a 1985 photo I took of myself on the Lacy V. Murrow Bridge across Lake Washington (aka “The Floating Bridge”). The shot I took back in the day couldn’t be redone, because there is no longer a sidewalk along the south side of the span. But still, it was fun to see how much things have changed.
And even since the stunning Mrs. BelRedRoad took the 2010 photo, I’ve lost 50 pounds, so change keeps coming.
