ABC WEDNESDAY: "B" is for "Before"....and after

There's been an exhibit of old photos of Belgrade downtown.  Couldn't help but snap the old stairs (taken somewhere in the early 1900s and a new shot taken...just a few days ago.  Foliage is different, but that's about it.  (And yes, those towers on the left are there, but now hidden because of the summer leaves.)

See other B's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Nice comparison.

That is really quite amazing. In our area, if you don't go to a certain area for a few months, you can't recognize it 'cause it's been either remodeled, refurbished, repainted, torn down or bull-dozed! :-)

There's something comforting in knowing that not all things change.

«Louis» likes "before and after" shots like this. He always finds them to be interesting.

I am relieved to see very little change in the after picture. I wonder if they led to a grand home or just to a vista.

Bises,
Genie

Your photo is beautiful. Clever of you to get a 'before' photo!

Bibi said...

Hello, readers and Genie in particular.

The stairs lead up to a vista point and down toward an esplanade and flower garden in front of the fortress's walls.

I like "before" and "after" pictures: it is sometimes a comforting idea to know that certain things don't change much.

a friend of mine recently published a book using old photos and new from her small town ..

back when I was a kid the NY Daily News had a weekend feature of then and now .. photos from various parts of the city from news archives compared to shots taken in present day .. I love stuff like that

Calling by from ABC Wednesday, interesting to compare the then and now shots.

Like Louis, I just love 'before and after' pics. Where I am, that means something; where you are, you can barely tell the diff (and I prefer where you are).

Like everyone else, I love these before and after shots. Good job of getting a good "after" shot to compare.
