This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart.
I quite like those Then and Now comparison photographs that you see in books or on the Twitter or Facebook.
I always think I should give them a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart. The first instance of this that came to my attention was last year in May when I went to Manchester.
However the following photographs were intentionally taken from the same location. I have over the years (when we had snow) taken a particular photograph so here is the 2018 version.
This with the wind and the cold was actually some of the worst weather I have seen down here, but as you can see it doesn’t look too bad…
This was how it looked in December 2010. Back then we had very heavy snow.
This was how it looked in eleven months earlier in January 2010, again heavy snow.
And here it is in February 2009. At this time this was some of the worst weather we had seen in twenty years. This was taken from the other side of the fence.
