A different kind of project

Some time ago, I happened upon an incredible photographic archive from around the Pikes Peak region. It brought back memories of my college days in the mid 80's wherein I set about to re-create photos taken by William Henry Jackson. A professional photographer took my college photo project a bit further in the late 90's. His name is John Fielder. I always wondered if he knew my Professor....Ha!

Anyhow, with this new reference in mind I set out to re-create a whole bunch of photos from the old days and make it into a video slideshow. Sounds easy, right? It took many a Sunday afternoon and many photos to get this one right. Not to mention near death experiences, tired legs, freezing fingers, possible tresspassing and inquisitive passers-by. In other words, it was awesome.

Here is the video:

  1. Wow, Alan, those are amazing! How did you even know where some of those locations were? It's also kind of ghostly how some of the older structures simply disappear when the new image is superimposed. Very awesome, little brother!
