Dear Photograph

Photographer Liese Ricketts led me to a site I wanted to share…you may already know about it, but it’s a wonderful way to bring the past and future together. The site is called Dear Photograph. Dear Photograph is a site that invites readers to submit photos of photos positioned over reality. Or, as the site’s description puts it, “take a picture of a picture from the past in the present.” Diane Sawyer explains it here, on the evening news.

Dear Photograph,
I’ll miss her cooking when I go to college next year.

Dear Photograph,
The grass doesn’t seem as green without her around. I miss her and can’t wait to see her soon.

Dear Photograph,
I found you in the attic when we moved in. I wonder if you lived happily ever after here…

Dear Photograph,
Thank you for allowing me to remember Tokyo in 1971.
Hajime Ishikawa

Dear Photograph,
I was astounded, but I hadn’t had time to consider what I was seeing.
