It’s time!! This is it!! Since September 5th, when this challenge was first proposed, I’ve been looking forward to this day. Originally suggested by Lisa, “Looking into the Past” involves taking a picture from sometime in the past, and taking another photo of it, where it used to be/would be now. There is a group on Flickr that does this, and there are some really unique things done with this idea. I have to send a HUGE “Thank YOU” to Art Oehlke, owner of The 503 Shop on Broadway, who was kind enough to let me borrow most of the photos/postcards I used in this challenge. Art’s collection of Lorain memorabilia is incredible!!
Mom and Pop, April of 1965, at what used to be St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church on Toledo Ave.
At this point, I was getting frustrated with not being able to bring the photo and the background into focus TOGETHER. And, since I have the toys, I figured I would be expected to step it up a little. So, I did.
Wasn’t too thrilled with the way this came out, but, you know..?.

I think Lisa wants to call something for next Sunday, but I’m not quite sure what it’s gonna be…So, we’ll wait for her to announce it. Hope you enjoyed!!
