Vintage B&W Photos Colorized.

I came across a post at Twisted Sifter the other day and I found it to be gorgeous. It was a collection of classic B&W photographs edited into beautiful color. They really are fascinating. It’s amazing at how much life the color brings to these shots and is a great reminder of what the world looked like just a few decades ago.

Here are a few of my favorites…
