Dear Photograph Website Brilliantly Combines the Past & Present

The world gets increasingly complicated and hectic by the day, so when I stumbled upon the amazing site, Dear Photograph, it charmed me to no end -- because it suspends a moment in time and recaptures a memory in a way that seems to make the world stop spinning for a brief but magical second. The site's tagline is: "Take a picture of a picture from the past in the present." And Dear Photograph is full of poignant, delightful and nostalgic images in which people have tangibly harnessed the intangible essence of a cherished moment from yesteryear.

This would be such a fun thing to do with your children -- especially if you visit places you frequented in your youth together -- your first house, a favorite hangout, a park or tree you loved... take an old photo and have your kiddo hold it in the locale all these years later. It's playing with time in the most enchanting way. Visit Dear Photograph to enjoy all of the inspiring submissions.

Take a minute to treat yourself to this slideshow of amazing images from Dear Photograph.
