A friend of mine posted this link on her Facebook page. This is the quote she posted along with them.

‎"Photographer Sergey Larenkov uses computational rephotography to overlay extant WWII-era photographs on their corresponding modern settings. The results are both spooky and stunning."

I thought these pictures were really...well, interesting really doesn't do them justice.

Just check them out for yourself.

Sergey Larenkov Pictures

Mods - I put this in the Weaponry section b/c these are military pictures.

These are really quite astonishing. Very bold and symbolic of the history included within each picture. Thanks for sharing!

I really enjoyed these, and will look again, I'm sure

Thank you!

That is the word I was trying to find to describe these.

While some are just location shots, the ones that really stand out for me are the ones where modern society seems to be mingling with long gone ghosts of the past...

S&F, thank you for this contribution.

It is amazing to see how much this world has changed, and how much has been preserved from such destructive times.

This is so cool. It allows you to view it in a different perspective. When you can relate history with the present, it puts it in a perspective that isn't so distant and therefore more real.

I saw this on Slashdot this morning, very clever! It adds the perspective of time to historical monuments. I was banging my head on the wall for not having think about it myself.

Eerie and sobering. Thank-you for sharing these. Let us be thankful for the (relative) peace enjoyed in those places now, hope that the same can be true for those places in the world where conflicts still rage, and that such times never come again.

Black and white photos of WWII gives one the impression that the conflict was in a distant past when in fact WWII is not that long ago. If it weren't for the B&W photos superimposed over modern color photos, I truly the full psychological effect would be absent.

Sergey Larenkov is a true master at being able to find the precise locations to match two sceneries from two different time periods.

A most excellent find and many thanks for sharing this artwork with the members here.

You probably have seen this: Warsaw 1945

BTW, a big
on your background. I beleive this is the year. GO GAMECOCKS!:UP:

So very cool, i think its very interesting to see how the past asn present merge. it makes you wonder what happened on your street corner over 60 years ago very cool

Brilliant work!! VERY impressed!

These definitely rock... Good job OP
It not only struck me in a ghostly way, but made me think of dimensions and time travel as well. Kind of made me think about like a residual haunting. The smaller pictures near the bottom with the bodies and people just walking by clueless of what they are stepping through.... Sorry rambling... very very nice find indeed.
