Grandfather and his Grandson (LP #8)

By MattConley

I'm really fascinated with past vs. present, and when I saw Anita's latest "Lens Project" challenge (which was quite an abstract one considering time travel was the subject matter) I felt inspired to kind of recreate an old photo of my grandfather, Charles Call. I never got to meet him, as he passed away a long time before I was ever born. 


 


The photo on the left is him in his 20's I believe. There I am, 34 years of age, on the right. His photo was taken at home, so I took mine at home as well.


 


To me, there's something about revisiting moments from the past and bringing present day perspective to them. Ya know, kinda like time travel.
