    from big geek daddy

    An interesting look at various historical photos that have been colorized from the original black and white photo. The series of photos begins in the 1850’s and proceeds through the Civil War and late 1800’s into the 20th Century where the reality of how many years were spend in war hits home. The photos conclude with one from 1982 of Pope John Paul II demonstrating the meaning of forgiveness.

    I find it amazing that whoever does the color..seems to get just the right hues.

    Unless I'm mistaken, "Gone With the Wind" was B&W, and has been colorized.
