Looking Into the Past (5 photos)

Union Station Square, Washington, DC

It's interesting to compare the past and the present in Jason Powell's latest photo set, “Looking into the past.” He first finds old photographs of historical places at the Library of Congress, and then seamlessly blends them in with their corresponding modern day locations. Jason was inspired by both his love of history and Michael Hughes' Souvenirs.
