A Colorized Crush & Wonderful Walls

Welcome to 2020! We've entered a new decade but won't forget the days behind us. Here's a taste.

Then & now

The Great Wall - 1907 to now

ourists from all over come to see the Great Wall of China. China’s various ruling dynasties constructed the famed wall, with the most well-known section built during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644).

Things we slacked

The people's photographer?

Alan Light has spent decades snapping photos of stars...and allows anyone to use them. He’s published his photos with a Creative Commons license so they are free to use.

B&W Colorization of the day

The working man's Marilyn Monroe

While most know Jayne Mansfield as one of the first Playboy Playmates, few realize that she was more than her looks. Mansfield was a Golden Globe winner, classically trained pianist and violinist, mother of 5 (including actress Mariska Hargitay), and reportedly had an IQ over 160.
