    Yeah, when I took the pictures, I kept thinking "Why didn't you print out the picture? Stupid stupid"
    When I visited Munich, Dachau and Nuremberg last year I had about 20 pages of printed period photos so I could line up the 'now' shots properly. Even so it was hard to get the angles right. I must get around to stitching the photos together and get a thread started.

    Thanks guys

    You should really get a thread up about that, I love now and then pictures. I got a friend to help me(He had a better camera) take some "now" pictures of the city based on pictures taken during the war. Even though it had not changed much, it was still hard to get the correct angle. Unfortunately, he sent me the pictures on email using a picture sharing website or something, and I didn't have time to put them together and compare then. So I thought "Eh, they'll be there tomorrow", it took me a couple of weeks before I actually sat down and was ready to do it, but then the pictures were gone and my friend didn't have them saved anywhere else.
    Best Regards

    Haven't had the transport to go out there for a while now due to moving, but I managed to get a quick trip a couple of days ago.
    Moved a lot of rocks this time as well, really need to get a digger there, I'm running out of small rocks to move

    Great photos and i'm sure there's lots more waiting to be dug up. I'd love to get over to Norway one day to visit friends in Oslo, the only downside would be taking out a mortgage to get drunk!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
