Two Brothers Hilariously Re-Create Their Childhood Photos As A Gift For Their Mother
Re-creating childhood photos has become somewhat of an internet trend, and this wonderful and hilarious calendar that the Luxton brothers prepared for their mother for Christmas is probably one of the best examples of this trend that we’ve seen. The premise is simple, and can be recreated by anyone – simply pick out some of your best or funniest childhood photos and do everything that you can to re-create them as an adult.
What’s especially heartwarming about these pictures of Joe Luxton and his brother is that, at least judging by some of these pictures, their brotherly bond has only grown stronger as they’ve grown. In other photos, the juxtaposition of grown-up brothers and childhood clothing/activities makes for a truly hilarious and/or disturbing combination.
They even got their dad, their uncle and their dog to participate. Depending on your take, the one where one of the brothers is sleeping on his dad’s lap is especially funny/creepy.
It seems like there are a lot of photographers interested in exploring their own past through photography. Argentinian photographer Irina Werning similarly re-created childhood photos in her Back to the Future series, which we covered in two parts. Chino Otsuka has done amazing work Photoshopping herself into her childhood photos to explore her own identity.
These photos are easy enough to re-create. If you’ve got the time, try digging through your family photos and your old stuff to see if you can re-create some photos too!

Hidden Beach - Mexico
A gaping hole in the surface of the lush green island exposes a secret beach, with ample shade, sun and crystal-clear water. The Marieta Islands are an archipelago, a chain of islands that exist as a result of volcanic eruption. The islands themselves are natural wonders, but it was something else that caused the burrowed beach to be shown the light.
The Hidden Beach is invisible from the outside, and is only accessible through a long water tunnel that links the beach to the Pacific Ocean. There is approximately six feet of space above water level, so visitors can arrive at the beach by swimming or kayaking. The islands are still uninhabited, but are frequently visited by tourists who come to enjoy the diverse marine wildlife and the unique tropical eden of Playa Del Amor.For those of you who will be in Mexico for the festivities toward the end of the year, let’s make this happen. You know who you are.
