Round Robin Challenge: "Past Vs. Present" (for 12/27/06)

Greetings, Robins!
This Challenge Is Now Closed!
Here we are again with another Challenge, this time for a posting date of Wednesday, December 27th. The topic comes to us from Connie, author of Windswept - Connie's Country Life. I'll let her introduce it:

How about: Past vs Present.
One could show
  • a photo of how they looked, say, 20 or so years ago and now...
  • or maybe the house they lived in, then and now...
  • or their garden, then and now.
The possibilities are left to the imagination.

I like this one a lot. Pretty much everyone has old photos of something or someone that's still important to us, still a part of our lives today. Normally we don't get to use these in the Round Robin, because the idea is to take new photos based on that week's theme. But this time, we get to do both: show off an old photo, and compare and contrast it with a brand new one of the same person, place or thing. Or maybe it's a completely different person, place or thing, say an ex-husband and the current one, or your old house versus your new apartment, or the recreation you lavished your time on when you were young and foolish, vs. what you spend time on now that we're all older (and probably still foolish). Neat, huh? I know I'm looking forward to it!

Okay, now try to stay awake, 'cause I'm going to run down Da Rules again, briefly!
