Site of the week -- Dear Photograph


I'm easily inspired by every little thing which stirs feelings in me so I decided I would share with my friends and readers all the good reads and good sights/sites I come across on the world wide web. Labelling the post "Site of the week" compels me to be more consistent in my blogging too. I will be adding a new label SOTW on my sidebar to feature such posts.

Today I would share with you a site that juxtaposes then and now:

http://dearphotograph.com

This site invokes a bittersweet feeling in me with the accompanying words that go with the pictures.

Enjoy!

  4. Turtle,

    I agree that times have changed. I don't think I can submit a Singapore photo since most of our landscape is ever-changing! I wouldn't even be able to find the same background at the same spot to put my photo against!

    simplyvonne,

    I love the concept too! It's very addictive right? Sometimes I stumble onto such sites and started spending too much time scrolling and clicking next next next that I decided I should not waste anymore time and start to save them in my Favourites folder. Now I've got too many links in this folder.

  7. That's a great site Jolene, thank you for sharing. It makes me wish I had more photos from my youth and of family members and friends.

    When I was little, I wanted to invent a machine that you could look into and see what your yard (or anyplace really) looked like 10 years ago, a 100, a 1,000, etc. But the past is gone. ALthough it's not too late to start taking pictures and recording what things look like now. Thanks for the inspiration. =)

  8. Squeeze the Pug,

    I hope you didn't get addicted and spend too much time on it like I did for a while.

    Label me Addict,

    Look out for more STOW to come!

    Oh yes the follower setting on your blog couldn't be displayed. I followed using the top blogger button instead. I'm not too sure if you could see me as a follower but I do receive your updates on my dashboard.

    Rick,

    Me too. It would be cool to have our old photos. But sadly most of the old pictures I could find, I couldn't recognize the background. Singapore and our everchanging landscape gives me a sense of nostalgia. I think I could place a picture of a bay against the casino hotel (Marina Bay Sands) since the bay has to make way for modern city developments. My house is standing on a land which used to be a village/farm.

I love reading sincere comments and hearing your voice. While blatant self promotion of blogs and follow for follow requests are not advisable, I would love if you leave a mark here with a trackback link so that I could connect with you. I reply to comments here or on your blog so don't forget to check back on replies! =)
