This work seems difficult but with practice and patience you can join two photographs separated by time. After getting an old photo you have to locate the area and then try to take a new picture from the same angle and height that the old photograph was taken.

Begoña NO VIEWS! on June 25

Muy buen efecto! Muy interesante esta técnica de superponer dos fotos, una antigua y otra moderna. Además, la escena es deliciosa!


Saludos desde España. Begoña
