I can’t get enough of these classic historical photos this morning. Once black and white, they’ve been digitally brought to life with an infusion of color. That’s Audrey Hepburn, above…
Albert Einstein, 1939
Elizabeth Taylor, 1956
Mark Twain, 1900
Washington D.C., 1921
World War II kiss, 1945
How cool is that? It’s like stepping back in time — suddenly, history doesn’t seem that distant anymore! What’s your favorite one, friends?!?!? xoxo

My favorite photo is the one of Mark Twain because for a split-nano second the color image made me think that it was the present day and my automatic gut response was "OMG! Mark Twain! Where is he speaking next? I have to go see him!" And then I remembered it was 2014. LOL!

Wow! These are amazing! My favorite is probably Mark Twain because it's so far back…it really is like stepping foot in history. Whoever came up with the idea to do these is a genius.
