    Thank you for your responses.
    "Then" and "now" was in these photos be a metaphor.
    On the first picture the old, eternal mountains with contemporary built road.
    In the second picture rape flowers, symbolizing the eternal work of farmers with modern built motorcycle.
    And the third picture eternally existing sea with modern built bridge.
    But maybe you're right, maybe these pictures were not a good idea. If so, please admin to get them removed.

    I found this photo of Rock Lake WA and the old Milwaukee Road from about 100 years ago, seemed like a good then & now candidate:

    My boys and I hiked in today and found the exact spot pretty easily. It has been 30+ years since the railroad was abandoned, but it is still fascinating terrain and a long ways from civilization.

    It was indeed. This earlier pic shows the grandeur of the original design.
