Then and Now Featured Photo: Aspen, Colorado

2012 February 23

On January 9, 2012, we posed a challenge to take a current photo of the ski areas around Aspen, Colorado and mirror an image by Documerica photographer Ron Hoffman.

Congratulations to Dustin Wesley for his photo taken ten days later on January 19!

A ‘Then and Now’ match up doesn’t get much closer than this now does it?

The challenge continues, perhaps you’ll be our next featured photographer? Send in your best ‘Then-Now’ match up!

Each week, we’ll pull out a new possible location, but all the while you can search and see how close Documerica came to where you live and travel. You might be surprised. Take a photo today, see what difference nearly 40 years has made!
