I have long thought about combining historic and modern images of San Francisco to make aligned, composite images that showed some parts new and some parts old. I have some great historic images, and new images are easy to get, but it’s been a bigger project that I’ve wanted to take on — and also beyond my Photoshop skills to do well.
So I was excited to see these images from photographer Sean Gallup, who works for Getty Images. (These images belong to Getty, so they are costly to license: $175 to $575 each, depending on size.)
Here’s a few examples; at the end is a link to a gallery with more of them.
