Have you seen the commercial for the Canon camera with the couple looking to re-create a photo of her parents?
I think it had something to do with a project called "Your Second Shot." Here's a link to the commercial.
I saw it again today while I was hanging out at home because of the great Ice Storm 2011.
I did something similar when I visited Venice, Italy about five years ago.
I had been to Venice with my mom and a group of her Latin students when I was in fifth grade and had a picture of me in my gondolier's hat in front of St. Mark's.
When I went back 17 years later, I took that photo with me and tried to re-create it. While it isn't quite the right perspective, it's close.
I love the comparison!
Before I head to Vienna later this spring, I plan to dig up my photos from my trip there in college and see if there's a photo/pose I can re-create. It won't have quite the same effect as the one above, but it's still be 12-plus years since I've been there so I know I've changed - at least a little bit!
I know it was cloudy and snowing while we were in Vienna last time - not the best for photos - so maybe I should contact Canon and let them know what I'm planning!
Have you ever done the "then and now" photo?
