It's amazing how much color can change your perception of something. For me, I have my an image of what life was life let's say in the early 1900's when these Autochrome photos were taken. That image has been formed over time through old black and white photos, history books, novels and modern movies reenacting the times. I like to think it's pretty accurate given the plethora of sources I draw from. But then I come across striking color images like the ones below and those images I have take on an entirely new life; one that makes me feel a bit more connected to the past and that gives the past a more present feel.
