Day 3 Colourisation Project – May 10th
Challenge: to publish daily a colourised photo that has some significance around the day of publication.
“Just a hoofer with a spare set of tails.” That’s how Fred Astaire once described himself.
Born this day, 115 years ago! He danced on ceilings and walls. He danced on furniture. He even danced en pointe. (on his toes)
The inimitable Fred Astaire entertained us baby boomers for years. There was no else like him…Gene Kelly came a close second. And there was certainly no-one else who could look so good in a tuxedo as he did.
Here are the before and afters …well actually, the after and befores. This was a publicity shot for the 1936 Hollywood musical, Follow the Fleet.
“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” Friederick Nietzsche
