    Dear Photograph: 35th Wedding Anniversary Edition for Tech Tuesday

    Dear Photograph,
    35 years ago today we stood in the same doorway. See you again, God willing.

    Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, Montecito, California
    July 24, 1976/2011 

    The website started it all. Return to the scene of an old photograph and take the picture again -- but superimposing the original image in place. It takes a bit of trial and error to get it just right, but the results are a kind of photographic time machine.

    This weekend, Mr. Curator and I returned to Santa Barbara to revisit old haunts. First stop was noon Mass at the church where we were married.

     Looks like we said "I do."

    Hard to believe, same time, same place, only the characters have "changed." We had a great time for our photo shoot; much more fun then waiting around for a wedding photographer.

    Thanks for all the congrats. Here's to next year!
