    Very imaginative. You could expand that to Flanders in WW1. Mount Casino would be an interesting picture as well.
    Cheers

    Great post Maria! Great to see you around too.

    I sometimes wonder what people of history would say if they saw what later became of the place they fought for.

    You're welcome guys, I think it's highly fascinating to see what the various places looked like back then, and what they look like now. But I'm not sure I'd like to try and make such photos myself - even though I love messing with GIMP and photos, I think it would take a lot of fiddling with old and new photos to create photos like that. ;)
