  • Realistically colorized historical photos make the past seem incredibly real

    Over the last couple years, an increasingly popular trend online has been to create and share colorized photos from history. Artists such as Jordan Lloyd, Dana Keller and Sanna Dullaway take intriguing old black-and-white photos and bring them to life with color as if they’d been taken only yesterday.

    Here are some examples…


    Two of my favorites:


    Audrey Hepburn


    Nicola Tesla
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

      I didn't really know much about Tesla except that he was an inventor until I watched that series on the History Channel about the men who built America. Since I live with an ex-history prof, I've learned even more about him. He was an interesting fellow with some interesting ideas and views.

      Here's another good one:




      You couldn't have staged this any better:

        Wow, thanks for sharing that link! Those are some beautiful photos. I could get lost in the details in each, and the colorized versions are especially enjoyable to look at. The people who did those must have put in some serious time in getting the details right.
