1998 versus 2014…

As promised, I scanned some old pictures of the old centre of our town and tried to take some new ones from the same angle (didn’t always work 100%). I don’t want to imply any judgement – both the way of dealing with old buildings in the GDR and the way of restoring old buildings nowadays is an expression of different approaches of conservation and therefore of different political agendas. This post is simply supposed to show how the town my parents live in changed during the years after the reunification.

So this is the before and after session comparing a few shots 1998 and 2014 (to enlarge click on picture):

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
