During a lunchtime perusal of CNN I came across an interesting iReporter gallery where users have aligned historic photos to the modern-day sites. That probably made no sense so click here to see what I mean.
I liked this shot of the Alamo. The photographer explains how it took a long time to line up and how he got lots of funny looks from tourists and Alamo guards. I actually had wedding party pictures taken in front of the Alamo so I can sympathize. This is a great shot and amazing that there aren't tons of people in the shot- the site, in downtown San Antonio, can be quite a zoo.
If you read through, it's interesting how and what many of the photographers discovered during their projects. Just another example of how images can be powerful learning tools!
Someone with spare time ought to do similar shots with historic photos of the Southwestern campus! For instance, the picture in the Cullen business office of the 1901 (or similar) women's tennis team perched on the steps of Mood Hall.
