Claroscureaux


I've found a new way to avoid all the things I am supposed to be doing, Claroscureaux. A blog dedicated to colorizing old photographs in the most enrapturing way. Now I love black and white photos of old hollywood celebrities and well, just about anyone; but it is so fun to see photos like this in full color, just to experience the photos in a completely different way. While going through the blog to pick photos for this post I seriously whittled away an entire hour because not only are the photos engaging but there is so much interesting information accompanying many of the photos - trivia, tidbits, notes on scandals...good stuff.

I LOVE LOVE!! GLORIA SWANSON!! Especially that picture that you have of her from Harpers Bazaar I went to go see an exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where they had a Harpers Bazaar exhibit and the original print was breathtaking! Louise Brooks was my inspiration for my last haircut!

You have amazing vintage finds!!
