Someone has colorized this classic photograph of Wyatt Earp, that dates from the 1920s. I'm not sure I like it.
On the one hand, it brings him closer to our world and makes him seem more human in some ways, but on the other hand, it kind of destroys the sepia-mists-of-time magic of the black and white. What do you think?
"Everything looks worse in black and white. . ."
—Paul Simon, Kodachrome
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away
When I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match
My sweet imagination
