Marsu, I like the plugin idea - I think I've seen some photos like that out there.
It's also a good way to embed the headline and caption into the shots or into an added border.
As always, you can achieve the same result directly with exiftool and/or ImageMagick. Next to the commercial wrapper plugin I'm sure you'll find plenty of shell scripts or gui frontends around for various operating systems even if you don't use LR.
If I do, I might have to get with you on those former DDR sites. I've seen some on EOSHD that look pretty interesting.
Be sure to contact me when you visit :-) ... I sometimes meet American tourists exploring these sites, there are whole small cities in the woods including cinemas, schools and nuclear bunkers. Even though they are mostly visible on google satellite these days, gps is always removed in forums like forum.hidden-places.de (being on topic) ... it's still not exactly legal to visit and you want to keep the best parts still hidden.
My main interest was to look for soviet propaganda, coming from western germany it's interesting to see how the russian soldiers saw the world and their enemy system. Surprise: soviet soldiers weren't blood sucking lunatics like my grandmother used to think, but decorated their schools with bees and flowers for their kids.
Since they always used their military newspaper as the background for their wallpapers, you can also look at their cartoons ("u.s. threatening the peaceful east with nuclear arms race") and propaganda photography ("praise the newest missile system defending us from the capitalist aggressors") from the 50s to their defeat, um, voluntary withdrawal 1990.
