Time has a bunch of colorized photos, here; http://time.com/3814470/see-the-american-civil-war-in-color-photographs/

But I found this one to be particularly cool. Most of the photos from that era almost don't seem real.

Last summer at a golf course in Ahwatukee. The wind and massive rain came out of nowhere. Yes that's the green that flooded in mere minutes and also a massive 45-50 ft tree that snapped. Good times!

It's important we add historical context to the images so we have a better understanding:

Robert Cornelius set up a camera and took the world’s first self-portrait in the back of a business on Chestnut Street in Center City, Philadelphia. Cornelius sat in front of the lens for a little over a minute, before leaving the seat and covering the lens. The now iconic photograph was captured 185 years ago in 1839.
