    Celebrating One Door of Faith

    This is only one door of faith in our family history. 

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

    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.

    I remember your original post (lovely) and it's nice to see another similar photo. Thanks for the reminder about Dear Photograph, you've really got the hang of it! :-)

    That is so cool -- and what a powerful way to recapture some of the past. Thanks for sharing, and congrats!

    Beautiful pictures, Denise, and a wonderful idea to share them for our Doors of Faith celebration. What a pretty day you had for your wedding and your return visit to Santa Barbara!

    Thanks for your comments and enthusiasm. My husband is now a fan of Dear Photo-style pictures. It is so much fun to bring together past and present. We sure were young, though!
