Challenge: Recreate shot from old photo. Do you have an old photo of yourself as a child or adult? May I suggest we try to recapture the background, pose, angle, direction of light as well as pose, expression and maybe even similar clothing.

The idea for this challenge came from Paul. His description is above. I think it`s a great idea.
I would like to expand on it a little as well. 

 If you wanted to recreate a photo of a parent, grandparent any family member, or even a historical image, with yourself as the subject that would be acceptable too.
Or even have someone else pose for you, as i know how camera shy some photographers are. We are photographers not models :-)

But the basic premise should remain re shoot a photo from the past that has a person in it.

please post the original image you are copying as well as your new one, So that we can see how awesome of a job you do...


same as previous challenges, the pic with the most votes gets to be the group photo for a while. the person with the second most votes gets to pick the next topic

      I'm out of ideas. I suggested many in the past with little interest. Perhaps I will get inspired and come up with something, until then it be best for someone else to come up with a challenge for this month.

      I am sorry that you feel punished Paul it was not my intent. I just didn't think this one was worth extending. If you have ideas on how to help improve participation I will gladly welcome them.

    only a couple of days left in this challenge, it sounded like such a wonderful idea, but it looks like it has been too much of a challenge for us.
    Should we extend this one ?
