Inspired by the Return to the Scene of the Crime assignment, comes a related idea which asks you to digitally mix the past and the present. This was done exceptionally well by Shawn Clover in his series 1906 + 2010: The Earthquake Blend, "featuring photographs captured during the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake blended into views of what the city currently looks like." Use a photograph from the past and digitally blend it with an image of the present. And for five thousand bazillion extra stars, blend the past and present photos with a digital concoction of the future.

Before and After

For my ds106 assignment A, I chose to do a before and after shot of myself when I was 6 to now. I did not blend the two photos together, but I cropped and merged them into one picture.
