This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester. I always thought I should give then and now photographs 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. Now this has come to my attention I have started to intentionally take photographs of the same place.
In the 1970s and 1980s I would visit Aldeburgh a lot, as we had family there. Having moved to the South West, I have rarely visited there in the last twenty five years.
We had a family holiday in November 2008, it was windy, cold and damp.
I did take a few photographs, using my DSLR Canon EOS400D including this picture of the North Lookout on the beach.
It was the location of the original lifeboat station.
On a recent return visit to Aldeburgh in January 2024 I took a similar photograph using an iPhone 13.
