So here is my recent photography gem I’ve stumbled across – a fantastic collection of colourised images to let you relive history in a surreal way. Photos we’re used to seeing in black and white/sepia transformed in to something that makes you feel like you are seeing these events and moments occur right before your eyes. Thanks to the power of photo editing tools and talented image editors, photo colourisation is more popular than ever right now. And thanks to a community on Reddit (via Huffington Post), after the cut is a collection of the 15 best colourised photos on the web right now. Please, just scroll and enjoy.
