I love the idea behind the tumblr site, Dear Photograph . What they do is ask readers to send in photos of themselves holding up old family photos in the exact place the picture was taken years prior. In a world of furry kitten memes, someecards, and texts from Hillary, it's nice to find something heartwarming and meaningful. I would love to dig up my childhood photos and do this.
They just came out with a hardcover book with their best "Dear Photograph" submissions. I heard an interview with the author/creator on NPR last week. Wouldn't this be lovely for a coffee table or guest room?
