I look pretty good for my age, right?
Don’t answer that.
So check out this fascinating little piece of photographic history that was running on BBC News online today:
These color photographs are 100 years old. I’m completely fascinated by this. Not only do they bring to life a past that is frequently difficult to imagine from grainy black and white photographs, but the actual process invented to create them is brilliant.
A coffee table book was produced in 1980 with Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii’s photographs. I wonder if the print quality was any good. I may have to check into it.
