100, now in Technicolor

The Library of Congress recently released a collection of photos taken during the 1930’s and 1940’s in sweet, sweet color (via Graphic Hug).

You’ll notice that they look kind of surreal.  We’re so used to seeing pre-war photos in black and white only that when we see them in color (and realize the people in the photos are real and not actors), the effect is kind of jarring.  Neato, gang.

Also, happy birthday to US, because this marks the 100th post on this blog!  Sigh.  Memories.

Although really, I think that means I’ve been slacking – I started this blog nearly a year ago.  Only 100 in a YEAR?

Oh, oh!  Another link (again, Graphic Hug.  Whore much?).  Head over to I Love You More Than Blank, and let the folks know what a romantic sap you are.

About Upper Lip

It's mostly a collection of sweet links and copious amounts of talk talk talk. I like it more and more every day. And yes, even the ugly blue/green color scheme is not without a certain charm.
