Intriguing work by Russian photographer Sergey Larenko : The Ghost's of World War II
Larenko is accurately combining photos taken today, placed underneath well-known WWII photos shot at the same locations, creating a disturbing vision of a brutal past vs. a more carefree present. An interview here and Larenkov's site


*****
Panzer: Sdkfz 250 & 251
Photo probably taken in the summer of 1945, in front of Berlin's Reichstag. These burned out, and scavenged, hulks was what remained of the Panzerwaffe units who had been handed the ungrateful task of defending the Reichshaupstadt.
