Last year, Beantown Bloggery ran the 1985 shot. I’ve been meaning to give it a modern companion for a while, but I don’t find myself at the particular intersection too often. I didn’t quite nail the alignment (I was shooting from memory, and using a different aspect ratio) but I’m still fairly pleased with the result.
