Default Re-photography.......

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for your reply and thank you also for sending me that link to those "re-photography" pictures - they are quite remarkable.

As I said, I've tried to do that re-photography lark and it is actually remarkably difficult. You really have to have the "old" picture with you, printed out so that you can hold it up as you try to compose your shot. You definitely need a tripod too. I was amazed at how particular you've got to be to get it right - even moving right or left just a very few inches can make a huge difference. But the guy who took these newer pictures has got it bang on - even the doorways, lines of the edges of the road, etc. are all perfectly aligned!

Kind Regards,

John.
