New York then and now

You know how these things go:

I look at the old photos and wonder about each of those people.   Each had a life, each was in a certain mood that day, there might have been gastric trouble, domestic trouble, there might have just been a windfall.  they might have been just about to die.   i look at their life span and then look at my own.   I too will also be on earth for this limited span, able to be photographed in passing like that, eventually to be long gone.

    I love comparison pictures like this. I have a book ‘Every Now & Then’ It shows Whitby as it was (photos taken by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe) and how it is now.

    Haven’t been there – should have but never did on my travels.

    Whitby – in some ways it’s just the same.
