Scenes from the Great Patriotic War superimposed on recent colour photos from the exact places where the original photographs were taken. Sometimes subtle, sometimes less so, always haunting. (Via.)

Very interesting and haunting indeed. Not always subtle, but neither is Shostakovich's Leningrad Symphony. You just encouraged me to play it this evening.

Fascinating images. Why so fascinated with Russia and Russian culture, though, Ken?

Why so Russious?

randolph - ha ha ha!

Absolutely amazing shots. Thanks for posting that.
