Spooky Colorized Photo of Washington Opera Singer

This one is a little spooky with the way he’s looking at you.

This is a photo of Harlan Randall of the Washington Opera and it appears as if he’s looking right through you. Creepy.

When Harlan wasn’t singing with the Washington Opera, he spent time as a music instructor at the University of Maryland. He also spent time staring into cameras with a super intense look.

Take another look at the colorized photo. You can’t not stare back at this photo … and an excellent job of colorizing an old photo I might add.

Note the statue on the partially-constructed pedestal just to the right of the abutments (bottom center). The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts erected this mock-up to determine how high statues on the piers of the bridge should be.
