Then and Now.


My dad is something of a wonderful amateur photographer. I have lots of great photos of myself when I was a kid (and plenty of my horribly awkward phases too). I know he's happy that I've picked up the photo bug. And as this year winds down I want to take a minute and honor all his help and encouragement to me (in all things in my life, not just photos)


I love you papa!


(I'm not certain exactly how old I was in the early photo here... perhaps a comment from my father will enlighten me *hint* *hint*)


EDIT: my papa has informed me (via my livejournal cross-post) that I was almost 8 years old when the younger half of this image was taken.


EDIT#2: I made Explore! For the 6th time ever. #354. I couldn't be happier that it's this picture up there. :) (up to #112 now woohoo!)

    that's a great shot, very very well spliced.
    see on Pragmagraphr's image comments
  • Mickey Johnson 7y

    dCapFoto: thanks so much! it took several shots and lots of tweaking of where the slice line was to get it just how I wanted to line up :)
  • Nico 7y

  • Leaca 7y

    This is great!
  • Mickey Johnson 7y

    nicouze: thank you!

    Leaca's Philosophy: Thanks so much! :)
  • Leslie Vernon PRO 7y

    Very interesting idea, and very well executed. It must have taken a long time to get those photos lined up!
    Seen in Damn, that's good! (?)
  • Mickey Johnson 7y

    Leslie Vernon: thanks very much! And yeah... I shot quite a few takes so I could try and get my face from just the right angle and my expression just so in order to line up... and then I used photoshop to tweak the scale and make the colors into the same range for both halves.
  • Roberto Foddai 7y

    I would like to do the same but my parents never took pics of me!
  • Mickey Johnson 7y

    Roberto Foddai: That's a shame! My father took way too many photos of me, so I had a ton to pick from when I got this idea. :)
  • Moser's Maroon 5y

    It looks great / you look great (then and now).
    I was actually looking for Pragmagrapher's photo, so thank you for helping me find it!
  • Mickey Johnson 5y

    Moser's Maroon: Thanks so much for the comment and the fave! And I'm glad it helped you find Pragmagrapher's totally cool version of the same idea too.
