A good photography can sometimes really stop time, capture a moment and preserve it for future generations. And slowly as everything else changes and fells a part the scene captured in that picture will remain forever the same. It is extremely exciting to look at old pictures like this and then compare the way something looked like in the past and the way it looks now.
Have a look at this interesting collection showing how old black and white pictures of some place perfectly fit in with the background, when the setting behind it is exactly the same place, only 50 and more years later.
See the collection!
