Brooklyn Bridge in colour

By KingBee
Waiting on a delivery, so in the absence of anything better to do I thought I'd while away the time by producing a hand-coloured version of my upload from the other day - in which regard, many thanks indeed to Moira, Allan and Kath for their UAs, and special thanks to Ollie for his GE award, and of course thanks to everyone else for their comments and votes. With the exception of the main bridge supports, which I'm certain were a reddish-brown sandstone (but we are talking 52 years ago, remember Wink), the colours are purely imagined, since, of course, the original negative was monochrome. Anyway, hope you like it.

Thanks Tony. Just noticed I've missed the odd bit here and there but it was never meant to be perfect. I prefer the mono version in any case.

That is impressive, Bob, and has a real feel of its time.

Very good painting by numbers, Bob.Wink You did a good job, however, like your good self, I prefer the b&w one.
I wouldn't have the patience to try hand colouring...
