Glass vs. Digital

I will always prefer the glass over the digital. I think it looks much better. Awesome.

OK Colorizers

Do your stuff. Let's see how close you can come.

Reminder

That the more things change, the more they stay the same. Thanks

Stunning

Comparing this photo with the 2007 version was awesome. So little change. The big difference is color, quality of the lens and film between the two.

[Technically speaking, neither one uses film -- the 1905 photo was made on glass, and the 2007 photo is digital. - Dave]
