I am a photographer, I've been shooting for a long time now, but decided to get into colorizing years ago. I've always thought time travel would be fun, but changing the course of time is a pain, and it's just not worth it.
When I colorize, I'm a time traveler—seeing the up-close detail and filling in the color. My finished pieces will look as if I went back in time and shot it with my own camera. Many of them have the look of a classical painting.
This group of pictures is just New York City. Some of these buildings are gone, but you can still find some of them now.
