Seventeenth: Bridge St looking South - Chippewa Falls, WI

(2 of 4)

Bridge St looking South - was a difficult one to rephotograph.  It seems like the wider the angle lens they used back in the early 1900's, then the more difficult it is to match the old barrel distortion.  Every lens creates barrel distortion, but back in the 1920's - lens optics were different than they are now, so imitating that level of distortion with a new lens is quite a challenge.  Not impossible though.

My favorite part of this image is in the Right Center - I actually successfully blended an Oldsmobile Alero with a Ford Model T.  The rear wheel well seemed to match up perfectly!
