historic photos colorized 1 2

Up until the 1970s, color photography was extremely rare, and so when we think about history prior to that time, we often envision it in black and white. Today’s technology now enables us to “colorize” historical photos, giving us our only chance at seeing what the world really looked like back then. And it was truly spectacular.Take a trip back in time through these photos below. It’s quite incredible to see Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein in living color.Seeing these photos in color for the first time makes it easy to imagine we could all have been part of a world that we've never even seen. It literally changes our perspective of history.

In his Half-Drag series, New York photographer Leland Bobbé captures the two sides of the big apple's drag queens.  The extravagantly made-up drag divas and the organic men that lie beneath. "Through the power of hair and makeup these men are able to completely transform themselves and find their female side while simultaneously showing their male side." Identities of the models are composed in camera and NOT by separate images edited in post production and/or photoshop.

Or a view of our planet like no other, taken from thousands of miles up.These beautiful, at times abstract, images are the work of Google Earth View, a collection of the most striking landscape photographs taken by Google Earth satellites with a little color enhancement.
