Dear Photograph

Dear Photograph is something I stumbled upon Tumblr a few years back and I fell in love with.  It is a Tumblr website and they have grown so much over the years that they even wrote a book composing the best submissions they have gotten.

I decided to go out and take my own Dear Photograph today at my sorority:

Dear Photograph,

I cannot believe that almost a year ago I got my bid card to be an Alpha Xi Delta.  I am so excited for all the beautiful women who are about to go through recruitment next month and I hope they too can find their home away from home.

Love,

Marisa

Basically you take an old photo, and you hold it up to where the picture was originally taken and you line it up to show past and present.  I think it is a beautiful way to remember old memories and see how time has changed.

Anyone can submit a picture to their website to share with others.  I honestly can spend too much time just looking at their entries and seeing people’s submissions.  {You can submit a picture here}.

I definitely encourage ya’ll to checkout Dear Photograph if you haven’t heard of it already and go out and take some of your own Dear Photograph pictures!

If you do take your own photos, I would love to see them and share them – just tag me in the post and I will share it on my blog! And I definitely encourage you to submit your picture to Dear Photograph too πŸ™‚

Happy Reminiscing!

    What a great way to look back on a memory!
    I always wanted to be in a sorority, but we don’t really have them here in the UK.

      Thanks Lindsay! And photography skills take time, I’m still learning and have a long ways to go- especially learning on a “non-iPhone” camera!
