Ghosts of Amsterdam (12 photos) [My Modern Metropolis]

Ghosts of Amsterdam (12 photos): "

Though there's no doubt in my mind that historical consultant Jo Teeuwisse was inspired by Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov's World War II photos, we can still appreciate her own spin. After discovering some negatives at a flea market and scanning them onto her computer, Teeuwisse then went to each of these Amsterdam locations to take more recent shots. She then merged the two together to make the past come alive. It's a wonderful way to pay tribute to our past and remember the ones who came before us.
