Single entry, multiple photos

  • Something old and something new (and if you find them, also something borrowed and something blue.) Up to four related pictures which follow the old wedding rhyme. By Willeke

  • The same location in an old and a new photo, in which you can see it is the same location but you can also see it has differences. Two photos in each entry (or maybe more if you have an in between one as well.) By Willeke
