Eighth floor is already so tight… yesterday half the floor sat two people to a chair in the lounge for a showing of the Goonies.  Today we had a story circle and one girl had a very hard story to tell - it was a super intense moment, and three people came over to give her hugs and one kid grabbed a bunch of tissues for everyone and it was so great.







holy shit

I don’t even know where to begin.



Historic Glass-Plate Photos From Romania Restored And Turned Into Colorful Art

The recoloring of old black-and-white photos is an excellent way for modern audiences to re-visit, understand and associate with history. Jane Long, a photographer based in Australia, has taken a collection of old glass-plate images by Romanian photographer Costica Acsinte (or Axinte, depending on who you ask) and updating them by adding color and a bit of Photoshop magic.

Acsinte, who died in 1984, was a Romanian war photographer during WWI who also took photos professionally and personally after the war. In 2013, what was left of his damaged vintage glass-plate photos was digitized by the Costica Acsinte Archive to preserve it, and it is this collection that Long drew on to create her wonderful photo series.
