I've always been a fan of Paul Dorpat's "Now & Then" feature in the Seattle Times. I noticed a guy in the UK was making composited cross-time images by matching Google's Street View with vintage photos, so I made some of my own -- though I sometimes take my own "now" photos to improve alignment. It's been fun to time travel and think about people and events that happened in our region's past. All images can be clicked to see them at full size.

Then & Again On The Air!

I did a little interview with Evening Magazine, a local news and human interest show on KING-5 here in the Northwest. We talked about my cross-time images and some of the underlying ideas that motivate me to make them.
You can see the segment online here:


And yes, they did misspell my last name. It's traditional.


  1. Do you have any prints available?

  2. Not at this time! I've been thinking about doing something like that, though. I'll be sure to post here if I do.

  3. The art that you post is incredible. Being a young woman who enjoys the history of this lavishly growing community I find it fascinating. I truly hope you can expand on this and take your work to other areas of the grand states.

  4. Thanks, Jaycee! I'll definitely keep making more images. I'll probably make some of other locales down the road (so to speak). In the meantime, I encourage anyone with a computer and some spare time to make their own images! It's fun, and not super hard to do.

  5. Greetings and My question is :what technique did you use to make the croos-images please.
    great site

  6. I'm so behind the times! These images are amazing!!
