Military History/Photos of ww2 bombing missions

Question
I have several what appear to be photos from the belly of a U.S. bombing plane of several places such as Genova docks, Berlin and others that show the bombs going off.  They look like military photos.  Just wanted to know more about these.  I found them I'm one of my dads naval books.  I was told by my grandfather that they were given to my dad by his uncle that flew bombing missions in ww2.  If you might know something about these I could send you some pictures. If now maybe you could direct me to find some info. Thanks mike

Answer
Greetings
I would enjoy taking a look at the photos.  Instead of sending me the photos I would suggest you have them scanned and then send them to me thru Allexperts.  Many local libraries have scanners the public can use.  I have seen thousands to World War 2 photos over the years.  If you looking to have your images used to help people remember please check out the below websites.  These sites do online postings of World War 2 images for historical reference.

Thank you
