Good old times...

nationale_bank_collage_2200px.jpg


Last weekend I may have found a new hobby that can be perfectly combined with my photography...collecting old postcards from my hometown.

I like to browse antique shops and flea markets and last weekend was no different. While looking at old postcards I came across the above. It is an old building, the National Bank, built in the period 1874-1878.
The building is still there today, although it is no longer used as a National Bank, but the whole environment has changed significantly.
The beautiful square in front of the building has disappeared and everything is now occupied by a busy boulevard and tram tracks.

It gave me the idea to make a collage of how it used to be, and how it is now. I try to position myself in the same place as the original photographer, but that's not always possible. In this case, the angle of the building is not quite correct...but it could not be otherwise. Otherwise I would have had to stand in the middle of a busy street and I don't think the drivers would have been impressed with my photography skills 😉
But all in all, it's pretty close, isn't it? I'll leave it up to you to discover the differences...

Oh yes, since I like to play with editing software, below is a modified version in sepia. Let me know which version you like best. I personally like the following the best because you don't immediately realize that it is a recent photo...

Certainly with the Sepia filter, at first glance, one misses the fact that they are photos from different centuries :)

Nice collage.
