Dear Photograph- by Anjum Razaq

'Dear Photograph' is a simple idea done oh so right. To quote the website banner, 'Take a picture of a picture, from the past, in the present'. 

You take an old photograph and go back to where the photo was taken, holding up the old photograph to show the transition of time. I think as teachers we could use the idea of 'Dear Photograph' to show our pupils how things have changed over time and get them to reflect on this. It would be a very useful part of the Geography unit 'Where We Live', the unit about the local area.  I did the 'Dear Photograph' below, have a read!

Dear Photograph,

I remember those long Summers spent in the park with my friends and brother playing cricket and football from the early morning until the late afternoon. The days seemed longer then and the times simpler... I miss the freedom and time we had back then; the future seemed limitless. Good times, good times!

Love Anjum

I was looking through my old family photo albums and came across this picture which I think was taken in the early 90's, I would have been around 10 or 11 then. I've done my reflection on the photograph and I have to say it brought back waves of nostalgia. Give it a try yourself and see which photo speaks to you from your family album!
