Rachel took a picture a day in 2000. Now she's taking a picture a day in 2010.
And it's not simply a "Wow! We look older!" What she gets here is a view of growing up and maturing as a person. But more than that, she also gets a view of the changing world in the last 10 years. Maybe I'm seeing too much here, but I'm allowed, because I'm the beholder.
I wonder, for example, if I'm the only one who sees the 2000/2010 photos in light of 9/11. I wonder if she also thinks there's a different feel to the country. Maybe. Or maybe it's in my head. I have always been cynical of the idea that the world changed on 9/11, but maybe subconsciously I do feel this way?
Maybe I just like it because I lived in New York in 2000 (well, Brooklyn), and looking at the blog, I feel like I'm looking at my own transformation.
Here's one example from her blog. The top picture was taken in January 4th, 2010. The bottom one is from January 4th, 2000.
