I took these four shots over a 12 month period in 1975-76 while stationed
in Germany. My intent was to have them in perfect register, but fate
would get in the way. After the first shot (autumn) the wooden foot
bridge on which I marked my tripod position partially collapsed and was
closed to traffic; I had to sneak on there to get the winter shot done.

The following spring the bridge was rebuilt from the ground up, and given
a higher arch, so I lost my elevation reference, and had to take several
frames of Ektachrome 160 to get near the ideal spot, but never did. Life
went on, and I traded in my Minolta for an Olympus OM2 system, with 28,
50 and 100 mm lenses. Ahem, but the earlier shots were done with a 38-100
Tamrom at its widest setting, so again the perspective was off.

Thirty-some years later, along comes Photoshop and after scanning the
slides into digital format I did my best to get them reasonably close to
being in register, but this is as good as I could do.
