1930's vs now!

This was a special one. I came home and found out they've thrown a lot of old family photo's on the table. I'm crazy about these things, so I immediately dove in. Among the many many pictures I came across this one. I don't know who's in precisely, but I immediately recognized the location. So I tried something. I went out with the camera, and tried to take the picture at about the same location, only nearly 80 years later. I don't know why, but it gave this amazing feeling. Knowing that 80 years ago my family was sitting in the (nearly) exact same spot I was standing all those years later. It's really something special.


*The exif says it was taken with a samsung S6, but that's because I only took the picture of the old photo with my cellphone. The bottom one is taken with the 5dMKIII + 24-70 F2.8 II.
