I like this one the best, not only for the contrast in age, but also in technology.

I'm starting to get through on the Coral Cache. But it probably has to build the cache for most pages.

I really liked this!

Especially the brothers(?) in the superman tshirts. Too awesome.

This reminds me of how every episode of The Up Series has Jackie, Lynn and Sue sitting on the couch in the same order.

It also makes me think I need to call my sister and plan to reenact some childhood silliness.

Wow. We all grow up. It's so oddly comforting, this charming proof.

Yea I won't be replaying my favorite kid photo.

It's 1972, I'm 1 years old sitting on a glass coffee table with a Miss America sash on sans top and only a diaper holding a Schlitz beer can.

Lots of people lost their hair, but on the bright side, also their wood paneling.

I'd love to see ColdChef do this for this photo.

Sadly, I don't think that's possible. If anything, though, I'd like to remake this one.

thanks! I loved looking at these- many made me laugh. Now I want to do this with my brother and sister.

Thanks swift!

A photograph’s punctum is that accident [of photographic detail] which pricks me (but also bruises me, is poignant to me), …for punctum is also: sting, speck, cut, little hole—and also a cast of the dice.

I now know that there exists another punctum (another 'stigmatum') than the 'detail.' This new punctum, which is no longer of form but of intensity, is Time, the lacerating emphasis of the noeme ('that-has-been'), its pure representation.

I'm so conflicted. I love the idea, but I'm depressed about it at the same time.

Father time is such a bitch.

Love, love, love this! It makes me so dang happy! I just want to hug all these people and be all "Yay! You made it! You're beautiful!" But that would be weird. Thanks a ton for posting it; I never would've seen it otherwise!
