Lost cities: Shadows of the past

“Can you make something for the theme Shadows of the Past“, someone asked me recently.
But of course! And as a major exception: a photo montage.
No complicated edited and manipulated Photoshop image, but simply one photo translucently superimposed over another.

What do you think of the result?


‘Shadows of the past’ is a photo in the gallery ‘Lost cities‘.
I made the two photos in this montage in my former home town Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
(and you can find the two originals in this gallery 😉
