Fortunately, the internet’s riddled with photo re-creations that span decades and even entire generations!
Check out this selection of the 50 most amazing photo re-creations on the web. These blasts from the past will bring you back!
1. Croc re-creation
Everyone loves the late Steve Irwin. He might be the greatest of all time animal guy. This re-creation’s with his son is spot on and thrilling. Kids, don’t try this at home!
Like father, like son. They look so alike. Seriously, everything’s exact, right down to the mustache. They even have similar watches!
3. Back in the day
Things were different back in the day. Here they are as children. Now, they’re grown men and more. They’ve been best friends all their lives.
4. Chillin’ in the crib
Some kids view the crib as a sanctuary. Others… view it as a prison. Even though they’ve changed a lot, they really haven’t changed that much!
5. Family fun
The kids are all grown up and out of the house. Well, now they’re back home. It’s the perfect time to re-create a classic!
Woodstock’s basically cemented as the greatest rock concert event in American history. Obviously, there was a lot of amazing music. But there was also lots of love! Needless to say, Woodstock changed their lives forever.
7. Punk hair
Hey, punk can be cool! Find me a cooler band than The Clash. Find me a cooler album than London Calling. Things have changed over the years, but they’re still right there beside one another, with or without the ridiculous hair.
8. Bike from the past
Welcome to 1967. Also welcome to 2019. Life’s a little different now, but one thing’s remained constant – their love.
9. Two weddings
Kids get fake married all the time. But every now and then, they make it all the way. These two eventually did get married. They haven’t changed at all!
10. In the lab
He’s been in the lab for a while. It’s been like 50 years… He ditched the microscope for a new laptop, obviously.
11. re-created wedding day
Wedding day photos are among humanity’s most cherished reminders. This loving couple’s seen a lot over the years. They’re still side by side.
12. The great outdoors
The great outdoors serves as the perfect setting for many a memory. The smoke from the fire adds a warmth to each photo. The new image’s a little clearer, but lacks that nostalgic fuzz.
13. Walking away
60 years ago, they walked away, hand in hand. Recently, they did the exact same thing. Nothing’s changed besides the location.
Sometimes, he forgets to eat his veggies. But she’s always there to remind him. She fed him when they got married, and she’ll continue to do so for the rest of their lives.
15. Look at me
He’s not three any more! Nope, he’s 26. Mom still looks great. She hasn’t aged a day! Her hair’s not as big, though.
His son looks exactly like he did. He looks exactly like his dad did. The resemblances are ridiculous!
He kissed his baby girl when he graduated. He also gave her a congratulatory kiss when she graduated. He’s so proud of his little girl! She’s all grown up now.
18. The boys are back in town
Boys will be boys, they say. Fortunately, these are some strapping, well-behaved young lads. The kid in the blue’s just improvising!
Both of these photos were shot in Tokyo. Except, they’re 73 years apart! Those skyscrapers… things have changed!
20. Father and son
He really, really resembles his father! They look almost exactly alike. That baby grew up to be a handsome young man!
On the left, there they are in 1975. On the right, there they are now. They’ve been playing the music of love for decades!
Back in the day, Dad was never thrilled to go to school. The first day back’s pretty daunting! Fortunately, he passed his classes. There he is at age 50!
23. Like father like son like daughter
That’s Dad on the left, rocking a cool, blue jacket. That’s his son in the middle. And on the right? Well, that’s his daughter with the same jacket, taken just this year!
24. Food market
Mom’s been going to the same market for years. In that time, her baby girl’s blossomed into a beautiful young adult. Honestly, the market’s full of amazing produce!
That smile’s contagious! Once upon a time, he was a happy, bumbling baby. Fortunately, nothing’s changed besides his age. He just loves life!
26. 24 years
A lot’s changed in the last 24 years! Dad’s been able to watch his son grow into a strapping young man. They both served in the military, and the resemblance is ridiculous!
Wow, he really does look like his grandpa. Their facial features are so similar, as are their staches! I’m not sure that Grandpa was a Raiders fan.
28. New graduate
When Mom graduated, she had to have a photo with her daughter. When her daughter graduated, she had to get one with her loving mother. This is one hilarious re-creation! She’s not as easy to hold as she used to be.
29. Piggyback ride
Kids love piggyback rides. Turns out, some adults do, too! Some things never change…
30. A dog, a man, and a bike
Dogs aren’t exactly easy to ride with. Getting home’s going to be a challenge. His dad needed a sidecar then, and he needs one now!
Their smiles say so much. They’re always adorable in their cowboy hats. Things haven’t changed one bit.
32. The hood of the car
The hood of the car’s a fragile, yet stylish seat. This group of friends re-created a vintage testament to their friendship. Shoutout jean jackets!
Trees can add a nice touch to any outdoor photo. They’ve been together for a long, loving time. And they’re still going! Although the trees have changed, their love’s remained consistent.
As they grew up, so did their taste in beverages… I can’t blame them. But deep down, they haven’t changed a bit!
35. Family of four
Family photos let us know how much we’ve changed over the years. The kids are all grown up now. But they’ve blossomed into fine adults!
36. Dad and child
He’s a new father, just like his dad before him. They have a striking resemblance. Like father, like son!
37. The yellow dress
The original photo’s adorable. The second’s not nearly as charming… But it is hilarious.
38. All grown up
Dad and son opted to re-create an old memory. Here they are at the exact same spot on the isle. Not much has changed, though they do look slightly different for some reason.
39. Two peas in a pod
They’ve always been two peas in a pod. They looked good then, and they look good now. I love those flowers.
