Love the pairing of contemporary and historic photos. Fun to see what has changes, and what remains the same. These are great.

A rocky coast where the waves can go wild. I'd like to be out on that little pavilion.

Very interesting moments in time! One wonders what has happened between the oldest and your recent picture.

The blue sky above, azzurro and beautiful as ever!
Happy New Year,

I like this kind of rocky shores. The changes tell the story of people who lived here.
