    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.

      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 :)

      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! (?)

      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.

      I would like to do the same but my parents never took pics of me!

      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. :)

      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!

      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.

      Great work! Can you tell me what are the two ages. I'd say 8 and 20 something?

      Such great pictures Mickey! Either of them on their own would be lovely, the two of them together is just wonderful :)
