These sweet photos came from Three Belgian Autochromists, a really cool site featuring the work of, you guessed it, three early Belgian autochromists! Autochrome is a very old way to take color pictures, used before the advent of color film. The site features the work of C. Corbett, P. Sano, and A. Van Besten, and frankly, the shots are just gorgeous. Plus, I really love getting to see pictures from as far back as 1903 in color! Do you think there are some hobbyists out there still practicing autochrome? The colors are so dreamy… See all the pictures here.
