A simple pleasure which can bring joy and laughter from times gone by, beautiful memories of lost loved ones, and moments to reflect on how things have changed since the photographs were taken. ’Dear Photograph’ is a lovely blog which allows users to choose an old photograph, revisit the place it was taken and re-capture it in the present setting.
