I'm a bit of a preservation buff, and I love looking at those "then and now" books where they take old photographs of buildings and streetscapes and place them side by side with the same view today.

Here's an an even cooler idea:

What do you do when you get laid off and suddenly find yourself with lots of free time on your hands? First, grab screen shots from a DVD of various San Francisco locations used in one of the greatest films of all time. Then visit those locations and take digital pictures. Go home, download the images and meticulously crop them to match the original screen shots. Arrange them in sequence, add a little text and ba-da-bing, you're done. Then you look for another job
