by erikrasmussen, on Flickr")Thanks to the little "One Year Ago" widget on my left sidebar, I was reminded about this photography/photoshoppery project I endeavored to embark on last year. Unfortunately, I seem to have dropped the ball in March for the "12 months" photo, so I've decided, retrospectively, that doing it every six months was a stupid idea and it's really better to do it at 12 month intervals. Remind me next September, if you would...

Actually I was also reminded by the "Previous 12 months" smart album I have that keeps recent photos on my phone, which sorts, annoyingly, in chronological order, so I'm often aware of the photos I took a year ago, as I have to scroll by them a lot. The photo on my phone was quite helpful in lining up today's shot. I used a tripod in the position I thought I remembered setting it up last year, but I got the zoom wrong. It turns out, however, that Photoshop is so awesome that it didn't really matter. In fact all I did was tell it to stitch the two photos together, and it did it all automagically. The result is virtually seamless.
