Scraping Back Time

I have always liked the “Scraping Back Time” photos that I have seen around so I thought I would give it a go.

I am currently working in Guernsey one of the Channel Islands and the only part of the UK that was successfully occupied during the Second World War so I thought I would try to create one of the time images, I only have my phone with me for the of the modern image but it did quite a good job.

I need a better understanding of post image manipulation in GIMP / PhotoShop (I still have not decided what one to use) but this is the outcome, it could do with a little more of what is going on today in the image but it’s not too bad for a first try.

Note: I do not know who took the original photo of the march but if you do I would be happy to credit them.

This is the view from the DJI at about 200ft in the air.

One of the issues with the camera is the distortion that the camera picks up so there is a need to flatten the image, in this tutorial you are shown remove the distortion using GIMP.

This is my beforeĀ & after.
