Dear Photograph

Dear Photograph is a new tumblr that features people’s old photos in the location nowadays. I love the nostalgic captions.

    I’m nostalgic for the KangaROOS in royal blue and white that I had in the early 80’s when I was a little girl! Can’t seem to find that color combo anymore.

  44. oh these are too much! i love to see these amazingly creative ideas (and secretly wish i’d thought of them first!!).

    i’m nostalgic for the days before i had to work. i’d love to go back to carefree summer holidays…especially now that school is almost out for the summer!

  45. — good idea!!! yes, coming up soon xoxo

  46. sleep. i’m nostalgic for sleep. my lil’ one is almost 9 months old and still waking to feed at night. he’s a slender little babe, so i’ve not been able to put a quash on it. i would love to see a motherhood monday on sleep issues!

  47. This is amazing, I love old pictures and compare how things evolve.

  53. I love this! I have a photo of my (around 6 years old) with my dad holding me as I waved to my mom (behind the camera) in front of our garage. Wish I would have thought of it sooner as a present for my dad for father’s day….

  54. Wow that is amazing! I can’t wait to go check that site out!

  55. i’d love to visit my childhood home and go inside and walk around. i bet it would feel way smaller.
