There simply are No “Good” Cops Anymore Daily Kos 

VIctory over Japan Day, Times Square New York, 14 August 1945, original and colorizedIn the hands of a sensitive, historically knowledgeable artist like Sweden’s Sanna Dullaway, digital colorization can be not merely plausible but positively seductive. To look at Ms. Dullaway’s full-color versions of such familiar photos as Alfred Eisenstaedt’s “V-J Day in Times Square” side by side with the originals is to appreciate the credo that appears on her website: “No colorized photo can replace the original black-and-white picture, but each will give you a new perspective on how your grandparents and great-grandparents used to see the world. Rather than living in the misty grey world we usually see, the sun shone just as bright, if not more brightly, on them.”
