Test Title 1



a blast from the past ...

apparently there's quite a bit of controversy over swedish artist sanna dullaway. sanna recently colorized some of the world's most iconic black + white images. while yes, there is no substitute for the images in their original form ... i wouldn't go so far as calling her work blasphemous. THE GIRL'S GOT TALENT. talk about a way to launch a business restoring and colorizing old photos. what's that saying? "any press is good press"!?!

{colorization: sanna dullaway}

of course, my illinois ♥ing self had to share honest abe. 
what do you think - blasphemy or talent? which is your absolute fav?

i can't promise we'll be retouching quite like sanna dullaway by the end of february. but there's still time ... sign up!

i am blown away by the talent. i mean i can retouch a zit here or there. and make wade's baby blues pop. but this took major skill (not to mention time). of course, the originals are icons as b/w.

Ahhh! Lincoln just looks weird in Blue! These are amazing though. The look like moder actors recreating the photo but I know it's not!

That's amazing! I have to say I think Lincoln is my favorite. Of course, the b/w images will always be the icons, but sometimes I feel like these larger than life characters are people you KNOW were real but SEEM like fiction. The color makes them seem so much more real to me...

Hey! I found you through the comment challenge :) I don't think that the colour photographs are blasphemous as such, but I don't like them as much. I feel like the colour takes some of the romanticism away. Although, I do like Lincoln in blue!
