    We recruited her 13 year old son as the photographer.

    She thought we were going to pose in front of her house, but I drove her back to the original scene.

    This is the original from 1980

    The surreal thing is when I showed up at her house with this novel idea, she and her son were working on a school art project. He had to create something incorporating a photo from when he was young and one from now.

    Then we took her son to the park and she gave him a lecture about how when we were his age we went there and played tennis, rode bikes, skated on the pond across the street, etc. We did not sit inside and play on I Pads and text all day.
