Ever wondered how people lived in the past? Stuck for stuff to do? Join in and get creative…

We want you to find and recreate an old photo and share the results with us on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #No34Recreates

 

Finding your photo!

The photo could be of your own family 5,10 or even 15 years ago. Got silly sibling photos of growing up in Sittingbourne or Swale? Recreate those! You could even take some inspiration from these brothers and their Then & Now blog.

What about an even older photo? Or if you’re feeling adventurous, you could even find a historic photo of Swale or Medway and set out to take a modern photo in the same place. This BBC web page has photos from 1986: one of St. Michael’s Church and another of East Street that are raring to be
recreated!

 

Filters and fun!

If you have a smartphone, try using some of the built-in photo filters & if you’re feeling fancy, see what effects you can create using photo editing apps like Instagram. Make your recreation as authentic as you like – there are no limits on how creative you can be!

 

Sharing your photo!

Find a photo you want to recreate and get going! You can take part from the comfort of your own home, so what are you waiting for? All we ask is for no offensive photos please — just plenty of creative flair and fun!
Send us a side-by-side of the final result, using the hashtag #No34Recreates
