Some things never change

I found a fifty year old pic from my mum and a pic I made some years ago on the same spot in my grandfathers workplace. I found some more old pics and new pics which show some resemblance

These are shot at my grandfathers work place, he was a tailor. The funny thing is that when I shot my pictures, I was not aware of the existence of the old pictures.

Some old camera. According to the age of my mum, around 1957
Hasselblad 500c

Some more. 50 years later

Holga 120, 2007

And here my grandfather 55 years ago with my mum.

    This is a fascinating combination of shots! For some reason, seeing the second one gave me goosebumps. Something about the link across time, I guess - the girls who are no longer there, the unchanged, neglected decor, the fact that both portray 'caged' beings... Can't articulate it very precisely, but it's powerful. Well done, my friend.

    @buckshot It's a lucky combination. When I made my photo, I was not aware of the existence of the old photo. This week my mum asked me to scan some old pics, so i discovered that old pic and a bell rang... hey I have one on the same spot !

    I fell in love with both pictures and the effect it makes to watch them together. Just lovely.
