I hope this qualifies even though it is technically a collage. This is a photographic memoir of my grandfather Manuel Smithwho was born 1887 and died 1963. Notice his expression in the 1889 shot and the late 1950's shot. They're so very similar - at least to my eyes.

I realized I should have added a now shot, so I went back and added the picture of my grandfathers gravestone. He is buried in the family graveyard on the Smith family farm where five generations of Smiths have their final resting place.

That's a really wonderful progression. With old photos it's rare to find a large number of the same person at different time periods. Well done!

A true representation of what this challenge is all about. Then and now. Wow. Its like looking in a mirror of ones own self. We all go through the same periods. We are carefree toddlers, we are young invincible gods/goddesses, we continue on, we age and we wear out and finally just become a memory. And every one of us who sees your collage is in one of those periods. Great job.

I must agree with everyone else. Nicely done. It's nice all those pictures were still sitting in a shoebox somewhere with your family.
