Amazing Blend of Soviet WWII Historical Photos and Modern Day images

I came across these photos today on Warren Ellis’s blog ( and was blown away.  I’ve always wanted to do something like this, but these images are especially powerful.  Ellis says that a fellow named Sergei Larenkov took old WW2 era photographs, went where they were originally shot – exactly – and then took a new photograph.  Then he blended the old photo into the new.  It’s haunting and fascinating.  Here is the original post (presumably Sergei’s) with more photos (in Russian).
