Colourized Classics

Check out these fantastic old shots that have had just a dash of life beautifully dripped back into them. Hard to imagine but these have been digitally recoloured by hand(mouse) using little more than a few other photos for some reference and a natural eye for colours. Surely that must be the 2013 equivalent of breaking out that 10,000 piece jigsaw of baked beans that’s been gathering dust under the stairs since 1999. In other words, I’d have no idea, no patience and probably no ability in mounting this E Everest.

I love the wee boy from the blitz, and I think Hepburn and Goebbels are absolutely heart-stopping, but obviously for quite different reasons.
