Woman Flawlessly Retakes Her Study Abroad Photos, 30 Years Later

“Thirty years later in Strasbourg, France. I was wearing a mini skirt and couldn’t mimic the pose.”

California-based photographer Lisa Werner traveled to Europe this summer to meet up with relatives, making stops in France and Germany. Before the trip, she scanned some old photos from when she took a language course there from 1986 to 1987. She made it her mission to retake the photos in the same locations, which she says was surprisingly easy.

“I just returned home to California after completing a fun photography project in Europe. I took 13 scanned old photos of me from 30 years ago and went to see if I could find the same exact locations to take photos of what I look like now. I hope to return again in another thirty years!” – Lisa Werner told Bored Panda.
