Historic Color Photography
I know I usually blog about wedding photography in Atlanta. Today I am going to blog about something else I am interested in and that is history. During the day I work for a historical and archaeological consulting firm. I have been doing this for about 20 years. I have always had this interest in historical photography. I my self still use large format photograph to document such things as NASA and historical properties in the southeast united states.
When recently one of my friends in the archaeology field posted this on their facebook page I had to share it! Just go to http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/2010/07/26/captured-america-in-color-from-1939-1943/ and you will see some of the coolest historical photographs ever! I have not seen so many color historical photographs in one place. Color photography really tells the story. In the photographs you can tell what they are eating, where they live and what the general condition of their housing is. I have shared one of the photos from the collection on my blog but take your time and visit it yourself and enjoy!
Thank you so much for visiting! Please feel free to call me at
and I will be happy to help you in any way that I can.
