"Take a picture of a picture from the past in the present."

 

This blog is an great resource to show urban historical geographies and changes to the landscape.  These photos demonstrate a more personal, emotional connection to places because of the memories and friendships made.  This archive of photos would also be a great way to explore the theme of 'place' as it is often crucial to the photo and how we interpret that photograph.

Even the three little pigs need to know the basic tenets of geography.

Victoria McNamara's curator insight, December 11, 2013 10:57 AM

This image has a lot to do with geograpy because of where the pig placed his new home. Location is key when deciding where to place a building or home. If a new mall is being built they want to make sure they put it in a popular area where people are like in a city.  In this example the pig placed his home right next to  a sausage factory where this factory could use him to make sausage. He probably should have built his home in an area away from the factory like in a neighborhood.
