Oh my God, let me take a guess, you decided to make photos from the same point of view of old photos, seems like few changes to give the contemporary feeling. Really cool stuff Damon, I am looking forward to more! Brilliant!!!

Here we go...Inspired man...really inspired. This is going to be great I know it. As a document to times past and present its a brilliant idea. Wish Id thought of this with Moriyama etc! Did you have the printouts with you when you took the shot as the precision in duplicating perspective is fantastic.
