Long-time followers will know how fond I am of changing vintage photographs and adding a little something extra.
Vintage Notre Dame is a Photoshop-created digital adaptation of a turn of the century photograph of Notre Dame and St Michael’s Bridge (Pont Saint Michel)  The photo is in the public domain at Wikimedia and I have added two textures from Design Cuts.

Most of his photos were taken in the 1890s while Størmer was a 19-year-old student at the Royal Frederick University using a Stirn Concealed Vest Spy Camera, a secretive camera with a…
