Photos: Family images then and now

Photographs are a great inspiration to see family similarities from past and present.

Argentine photographer Irina Werning's photography series - "Back to the Future" - shows us a new way to explore and preserve photographic memories.

Like many of us, Irina loves old photographs and preserving family memories. In a way to document the present family,  she take an older photograph from childhood or from the past, and replicates it with the same people years later.

Together, the two photos show family history coming alive in the present, and is a great way to link memories from our childhood to adulthood.

Have you ever tried to give a recent photo a vintage look or emulate an old family photograph? If so, share the photograph or link to your photo in the comments section below, or share on our Facebook pageTwitter or Google +.

Childhood: Your first memory?

In my Florida childhood days

Recently someone asked about my first childhood memory. I began to think about some of my “first” moments. My first steps, the first taste of candy, or my first word.

But were these really my own memories or just stories about these events told to me by my parents?

We all have memories of growing up, but it's difficult to distinguish between those we really remember and those our families repeated throughout our childhoods.
