I am fortunate enough to get to travel quite a bit both domestically and internationally. I have a background in graphic design and photography and I’ve always loved history. Along the way I stumbled upon the perfect way to bring all these things together as one. A few years ago, I think it was a trip to Paris with my kids, I was doing some Google research on the history of Paris and a few photos from the late 1800s and was blown away. I saved them on my phone and when we arrived in the City and we found ourselves in front of the Hôtel de Ville I got the bright idea to try and find exactly where the photographer had stood to get the shot. I took the photo myself and when I got back to the apartment that knight I opened them both up in PhotoShop and replicated the cropping, pasted them side by side and that was the beginning of a life long scavenger hunt.
