33 ‘Colorized’ Old Photos Show the Fascinating Life of Filipinos from the Black-and-White Era


Posted by Buzzer Joy

Old photos were mostly black and white or sepia or some other ‘boring’ monochromatic shade because the technology of their time did not yet include color photography as we know it today. Still, it is wonderful to see these beautiful photos of the life that our forefathers had enjoyed in their day – even if what we see does not have much color.
But with today’s advances in technology, transforming these monochromatic photographs into colored ones has been made possible!
Amazingly, the added colors have transformed these photos from old ones into something that you’d think were taken just yesterday! Of course, that is surely impossible as kalesas no longer grace most of the country’s roads, highways and roads have become too congested, and people wear different types of clothes as the ones worn in old photos. Still, the results of the coloration are truly stunning!
