Family photo re-creations so clever they deserve a prize

October 27th, 2020

Photographs are memories from the past and every vintage photo tells a story about a person, place, thing, or event. These printed images speak not only thousands but millions of words. To some, these are treasures that they highly value.

Sadly, today’s generation rarely uses this type of technology because we now have advanced gadgets. Truth be told, the age of cameras (the ones that aren’t attached to our phones) and photographs are almost gone and forgotten – almost.

Gladly, there are some people who still keep their photographs at home. They still have them stored maybe inside a box or in a photo album, and it’s a beautiful thing. They can pull out a box or book full of nostalgia from their own personal past and reminisce over all their most cherished memories.

What’s more interesting is that some have recreated these images and uploaded them on the internet, and the results are pretty amazing!

Get ready to be mind-blown by these crazy photo recreations. Scroll down and enjoy the gallery below. Here are our Top 15!

1. Like father – like son

We all love the late Steve Irwin, also known as “The Crocodile Hunter.” He’s undeniably one of the most entertaining animal guys to have ever existed. In this photo is his son, Robert Irwin, and what an impeccable recreation this is! It’s indeed like father – like son.

2. Brothers

Siblings tend to go their own paths as they grow up, lucky are those siblings who still have the ability to be together. Perhaps, I am pertaining to these four siblings here.

11. Footsteps

His grandfather was a heart surgeon and now, he’s a neonatology fellow. Following granddad’s footsteps in saving lives.

12. Mustache

A dad holding his child and that child later holding his own. 33 years apart but nothing seemed to have changed. The mustaches say it all, and can we just also note the baby looking in the same direction? That’s too perfect for a coincidence.

13. Bedtime

This goofy father and son recreated a sweet bedtime memory from 1985, but wait, isn’t he too big to be still resting on dad’s chest? We also noticed that his son also became fond of getting inked.

14. Fly together

She took a picture with her pilot dad in the cockpit before, and now she’s a part of the crew! This is not as simple as just recreating the picture but also a story of reaching your dream no matter how high it is.

15. Too big

Another father and son remake. From the year 1977 to the year 2018, same spot, and same place. Nothing has changed except son’s no longer a pack-size.

Change is the only consistent thing in life and it is inevitable. It is sad that cameras are now being replaced by smartphones and other devices, however, we can still preserve photos that contain precious and unforgettable memories.

Aren’t those photo remakes incredibly funny and awesome at the same time? It’s amazing how they were able to recreate the poses, outfits, places, things, and almost everything from their old photos. It only proves that photos are ageless- they are just as beautiful and valuable before, now, and forever.
