SNGF: Staats Not Gonna Follow [the rules again] – The Alexander Staats House, Then and Now — 6 Comments

  1. Very nice, although a bit sad to see the past fade away. I did mine in photoshop too. I didn’t make it so fancy though. No hand and no fading in and out. I think I will try another one. This was quite fun.

  2. Thank you all for the kind comments. It is much appreciated.

    Just for clarification – I did the editing (resizing, skewing, etc) in Photoshop. The actual animation was done in Adobe Flash. I initially tried a static image with different levels of transparency, but it kept leaving me with a desire to see one or the other photo without the other one in the way.

    I think it is the fact that the past disappears from this photo that saddens me, as well. Even worse, not to get overly corny with the analogy, but it is literally slipping through my fingers. Well, maybe it’s technically slipping through a picture of my finger and a picture of my finger that have been merged but…ya, I’m just gonna go with being sad it’s slipping between my fingers.

  3. Wow… very striking results. Very poignant as well – it’s hard to see our ancestors disappear from the picture, and you’ve captured that feeling perfectly. Beautiful work.
