My colourizing projects have started with the commemoration of the end of the first World War. I specifically looked for old photos depicting the Belgian population, civilian and military, during that period. Other colourizing projects will be posted shortly.
This colourization was a birthday gift to Roger Goethyn, former paratrooper seen in action in the Congo on the photograph which was a black and white original.
To commemmorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, I colourized this photo in June 2019.
