These are a few of my favorites. The portraits, I think, are some of the most successful recreations. Jackie ended up being a wonderful match to the portrait of Mary Preston. Mathew and Chloe also seem to give off the same luxurious vibe as Thomas and Emma Lucas do in Miley's original. McCrum's Drug Store has certainly been gone for years, so I photographed the building in which it used to exist. That building has been completely remodeled, and is where a retail store called Hamilton and Robbins now stands.
The first image is Barclay House located next to the post office. Apparently, part of the land that used to belong to the Barclay House is now property of the neighbors. For this reason, I could not take the picture from the original place. However, it is evident that Barclay House was conserved the same way over the years.
The second image is Lexington High School, what is now Waddel Elementary School. What strikes me the most about these two images is the difference in level of activity. Lexington High School used to be very isolated compared to the most recent image. The constant movement of cars and people in front of the camera made it difficult to take the picture. However, I did not have any other difficulties when taking this picture.
The first photo I chose to take was one of a male W and L student. My first goal was to evoke a similar emotion in the photo, while also hinting at the nuances of the change in attire. While both students are in a coat and tie, the current student has a visibly patterned tie. In addition, I found it interesting because the focus of the older photo is not on the students face, but on the attire. I chose to replicate this to a certain extent, while keeping the face slightly more in focus than the original.
It was really hard to find the Lee Dorms because of the new infrastructure that was added to it. Although Lee Dorms, what is now Graham Lees Hall, has barely changed over the years, its surroundings significantly changed.
For the R.E Lee Church image, I was not able to take the picture from the original position because there were buildings across the street that impeded me from standing further away from the subject and capturing the same image.
While shooting the Colonnade, I came across the problem that my field camera was unable to capture the same amount of the buildings as Miley originally had. This is most likely due to the fact that he was using a wide angle lens, unlike myself. Besides that problem, I was able to take a photo from the same location as he had done previously.
