Then & Now Project

Today I wanted to continue working on a project that I started last year and kind of deserted for awhile. The project is about merging photos together taken in the same exact spot, but many years apart. I call it the "Then & Now Project.". I found a lot of photos and ideas on which is a really cool site with hundreds of photos from Atlanta's past. 

Here's a few of my final pieces:

Flatiron Building: the oldest standing skyscraper in Atlanta. Original photo from circa 1897

Downtown Connector. Before the highway was built, it was just a ton of dirt, which was dug through to make way for I-75/85

Life of Georgia Building. Original photo dates to the construction in 1966.

After I finished taking the "Now" photos, I went over to the Varsity to try it for the first time. It's an Atlanta Landmark but I can't quite understand the hype after eating there since it tastes like basic concession stand food. I took a couple photos afterwards to add more to my city photography page on my website:

10 seconds f/18 ISO 100
Nikon D3s
Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye

2.5 seconds f/11 ISO 100
Nikon D3s
Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8
