Recently Colorized Photographs of my Early Childhood

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It has been an interesting experience to have some of my early childhood photographs colorized.  Afterward, adding a frame around each one with a description to identify the important information about the photograph is another step in this process I’ve learned.  

I has been heartwarming to have a new version of my childhood photographs that I am growing to like more than I thought I would — after viewing only the original black and white versions for so many years.

Scanning original photographs to save & share, and even improve them brings to us a renewed sense of their importance in preserving the history of our lives and the changing times we relive through them.
