Not far away from where I live on the Columbia River, there's a Stonehenge replica. I always thought I would go there and find some unsuspecting tourist. The one time I went looking, I was the only one there for hours. No picture that day! When Debbie and I went to the "real" Stonehenge, we were among about 100 tourists. I stalked these guys for while and don't think they didn't notice, so I finally took this shot out of fear they would soon wallop me with motorcycle chains. I wish it were better composed but fear does that to you, doesn't it? Makes you act irrationally. They were probably nice guys just like the rest of us, seeing the world and enjoying their later years.

This photoblog is a self-assignment challenge where I take pix based on old vernacular snapshots I buy in thrift or antique stores. Part of the challenge is finding snapshots for less than a buck. The original snapshot is posted on the left and my interpretation/contemporary view is on the right. I do not find an old photo and then dig through my archives to find a good match. The original pic served as a base or starting point. The interpretation may be straight forward or somewhat obtuse.
