Looking in the Past

Here is another idea of a project you could aim at your students. Take an old picture and hold it up in front of the location where it was taken. Take a new snapshot with both the new location and the old picture in frame.

Sounds complicated when I write it out, but take a peek at Looking into the Past Flickr group to see lots of examples. It's a terrific effect.

I'm going to set up a lesson around this idea for the fall. I'll update you once I run it through a class.
