A Note To "Colorizers"

 -

 TO THOSE WHO LIKE TO"COLORIZE" OLD PHOTOGRAPHS - I'm glad you've found a hobby that you enjoy, but PLEASE don't lie to yourself and say that you're "restoring" anything! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE TRUE COLORS WERE!

Its fun to play around with the old photos but I prefer the original black and white most of the time.

Ralph, I don't blame folks who do what they enjoy; I just wish they'd show us the original, too. And most are NOT restoring anything, they're just playing with colors. A friend told me that the colors can be pretty accurate if you know all the tricks, but VERY FEW people know those tricks.
