30 Wholeseome Old Family And Childhood Photo Recreation

Just occasionally the Internet comes up trumps and helps someone create something really remarkable, as they have done in assembling this array of recreated childhood and family photographs. What is even more clever is that once you have looked at them all, only then does the penny drop and you realize that on fifty occasions, fifty people have independently had exactly the same idea at some point or another.

Truth be told, we love the idea at Stylish Eve, and whether embarrassing or not, these photos do nothing other than standing as a testament to family values. We think it is remarkably touching how many of these photographs are not just of children but include the parents as well. What is even more of a surprise in some of the photos is not seeing how much the children have changed, but how little the parents have!

Yes to recreating old family photos!

“The photo my sister and I recreated was from her first communion. So, the photo was taken roughly 19 years ago. It was actually her idea to recreate the photo. I can’t speak for her, but I’d have to guess it was the veil in the old photo that sparked the idea to recreate the old image, on her wedding day,” he told us. Read on for our full interview with Dominic.”  said  photographer Dominic Sberna, one of the people whose reenactments have gone viral online

Bored Panda also reached out to Cody about him recreating his grandfather’s photo in Japan. He told us all about how “surreal” and powerful it was.

In photographer Dominic’s opinion, recreating family photos is popular because people seem to love then-and-now pictures.

“There’s such a large amount of then-and-now photos of celebrities that I think the desire to see a comparison as to how people have changed trickles down to the everyday person,” he told Bored Panda. “I believe that social media and the humor of recreating a photo from childhood is also a major driving force. It’s funny to see a grown adult recreating a situation from their childhood because it’s so out of place and makes for a really funny photo!”

Dominic revealed that the photo of his sister and him wasn’t he only photo he’s recreated. He also took a photo of himself on the last day that he was 17 and recreated the same picture on the last day that he was 27. “Maybe I’ll keep that trend going,” he said. Dominic also revealed that his sister’s wedding photo was taken by Country Roads Photography, located in Forest, Ohio.

In Dominic’s professional opinion, the biggest challenge in recreating photos is getting the posing and angles right. “This can be difficult for recreating any image, let alone with people involved,” he said.

He added that it’s vital to print out your photos and keep physical copies of them. “These photos are all digital and online, but it’s important to have printed copies of your memories, so that you can have them to pass down to future generations. Plus, by doing so, maybe your future children will one day recreate a photo of you,” he urged others.

Meanwhile, Cody, who recreated his grandfather’s photo in Japan, had this to say to Bored Panda: “When I was younger I became interested in WW2 in the Pacific because I knew my grandfather had been in that theatre of the war. He was a Navy dental surgeon and called himself the ‘Jumping Dentist’ because he was possibly the only Naval dentist to also be trained as a paratrooper.”

Cody told us that after the war, his grandfather was part of the occupation of Tokyo. “The clash of cultures that eventually grew into cooperation and success for both countries was a captivating story to me. And it caused me to dive deeper into the full history of Japan and it’s culture. So when I got a few months before the start of my career I decided on a whim to go and live in Japan for a time, working as a bartender. I did this for many reasons but I think all those reasons grew from the memory of my now-passed grandfather who seemed to live a life of adventure. I wanted to do the same,” he said.

Before leaving, Cody got every photo of his grandfather’s from Japan and digitized them. “I spent a very long time attempting to find any photo that aligned with the present before I left, but had little luck. Most photos were unlabeled or only had vague descriptions. Even more problematic was the fact that most of Japan when he was there was still destroyed by the war. However, some of the Japanese people I worked with helped me in my quest. The only photos of hundreds that they recognized was the Imperial Palace in this photo.

When Cody got the chance to go, it was literally his last day in Japan. “I didn’t know if the spot was inaccessible to the public or if I could find it at all because the palace is quite large. But when I spotted the building in the distance, there were some pretty indescribable feelings. I had so many other adventures while I was in Japan, too many to relate here, but that moment was surreal. It was like seeing someone you know across the platform in a train station. You know you’re both coming from and going to different places but the miracle that you managed to cross paths here seems to validate your entire journey.”

Those of us who paid attention in biology class will remember that children inherit genes from their parents. They get one set of genes from their dads and the other set from their moms. Depending on what combinations these genes match up in, family members can end up looking very similar to each other. (Or barely anything alike!)

So while some of us are able to recreate photos of our loved ones quite easily, others have to rely more on clothes, props, and posing to get the energy just right.

We’re living in an age where nearly everyone seems to have a smartphone with a gazillion-pixel camera. So taking a family portrait or a goofy selfie is incredibly easy. However, just because we can take fun family photos, it doesn’t mean everyone wants to.

Some family members feel shy and avoid having their picture taken because they may have self-esteem issues or they’re ashamed of how their bodies look. Personally, I’ve always had issues with having my picture taken because I look like an utter goofball in them.

According to St. Vincent’s Behavioral Health Center, people who are afraid of having their picture taken might have some sort of social phobia. Their advice is to become desensitized.

At first, try taking your own photo with a time-delay camera, then have a family member or a close friend take your picture from a long distance. Gradually, reduce the distance until you feel fully comfortable. Remember to try and keep your mind occupied with other things while you’re being photographed. Eventually, you’ll be taking part in family photos and recreating old pictures so well, you’ll rival the best of ‘em!

20 Incredible Images of the Olympics’ Athletes That Show What the Human Body Is Capable of

Tokyo 2020 Olympics has been the topic of the internet recently. Even though there was a delay due to Covid, a lot of athletes were in excellent shape to bring golden medals to their countries. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games launched on Friday 23 July with the opening ceremony, although the sporting action actually kicked off a couple of days earlier. It all comes to an end on Sunday 8 August, with the Olympics officially lasting a total of 17 days.

I can’t even imagine the joy one experiences when they have that gold medal around their neck. All the hard work, the sacrifice pay off in the best way possible. And this is not just a personal win, you’re representing a whole country that has its eyes on you in that moment of competition.

What we see on the TV are just the results of a long preparation. If the athlete wins we are proud, if they lose, we are quick to judge. However, today we want to give you the real image of what happens behind the scenes. There are a lot of things these athletes go through in order to achieve that shape and get qualified for the Olympics. Therefore, today we are bringing some of that footage that often goes unseen. Scroll down below to check it out. And let us know what you think of this year’s Olympic games.

6. In 2009 J.R. Celski sliced through his entire left quadriceps with his right skate blade at the U.S. Olympic trials

My first major sports injury happened at the 2010 U.S. Short Track Speed Skating Olympic Trials. It was the competition I had to do well at in order to secure a spot on my first Olympic team. The fall happened in one of the last races of the competition, the 500 meters, known for absolute top speed. I fell in the corner and put the front six inches of my blade straight into my quad. I bounced off the pads with the blade still in my leg, looked down, and had to pull it out myself because of the awkward position that I was in.

I completely severed the VMO “teardrop muscle” and luckily barely missed the femoral artery which might’ve been the end. It was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever gone through, especially because in the moments after, I started realizing that I might not be able to achieve the goal I set out for in the first place. If not for the people around me including my family, friends, and medical staff, I wouldn’t have been able to get back on my feet, especially in time to go to the Olympics and win two medals.

8. I Was Born With A Condition: Pectus Excavatum. Which I Know Sounds Like A Harry Potter Spell. My Deformity Began Appearing Around Age 10

BatmansBreastroke

My name is Cody Miller. I am not a typical Olympic swimmer. Like most sports the taller you are the better… Most swimmers are incredibly tall, well above 6ft… I’m 5’11 and only weigh 170lbs. More often than not, I’m the smallest person in the pool.

My condition puts stress on my respiratory system. Tests have shown that my sunken sternum and odd placement of other bones have caused a reduced lung capacity… To what extent is unknown. Doctors have said my maximum breathing capacity is likely reduced by 12-20%. Also… I’m diagnosed as asthmatic… Which I learned, from studies run on me in college, has nothing to do with my pectus condition. I live with difficult circumstances as a swimmer. Despite my disadvantages, I’ve dedicated my life to swimming… And I’ve never given up. Like a lot of you, I have struggled with body image problems throughout my life. I struggled with my appearance from a young age. I was a kid who was afraid to take off his shirt in gym class… people thought I was weird. At swim meets, I walked around the pool deck awkwardly while people stared and pointed at me.

I was weird and abnormal… However, I’ve realized this: No one is 100% satisfied with the way they look. Everyone has something about themselves they dislike. And that’s OK! Professional athletes, models… everyone has their own insecurities! I’ve embraced the fact that I have a giant hole in my chest! It’s OK! Monday night. June 27th, 2016 in Omaha Nebraska. USA Swimming Olympic Trials took place at the CenturyLink Center live on NBC, in front of a crowd of 17,500 people, I swam in lane 5 of the Finals of the men’s 100-meter breaststroke.

Only 2 athletes per event qualify for the Olympic Games. 2 swimmers to represent the U.S.A in the 100-meter breaststroke… I’d been dreaming about this moment my entire life. One wrong move and it’s over… The pressure of a lifelong dream… Years and years of training. Thousands and thousands of hours of preparation for a race that lasts 59 seconds… 2 lengths of the pool… 1 start… 1 turn… 1 finish… 1 moment… 1 opportunity… I did it… The feeling is still indescribable… I qualified for the Rio Olympics. My new Olympic teammate and I hug. Seeing the Olympic rings next to my name… I try not to cry… I did… like a baby…
