Default Selective Coloring of a family.

This is a famous shot here in Canada. So much so, it became the backside of our loonie for a year. Originally black & white, I colored the mom, her son and dad, marching off to war.

I like it. Generally, this is a scene that will probably never be repeated. As usual, your colorization skills are top notch. One question...What's a loonie?

In Canada we dont have one dollar or two dollar bills. They come as coins. On the back of the one dollar coin is a bird called the Loon so the coin got called the Loonie. Then a few years later when the two dollar coin appeared, it was called a toonie. Just noticed a mistake I made coin in the photo is a toonie (2 dollar coin). Its two metals as you can see. The loonie is solid brass.

G'day mate

Like others above, I am most impressed with your colourising of the original image and the use in coins as well

Seemingly also like Canada, Australia also has done away with low-value notes into coins, and also deleted low-value coins as well.

What I see Phil, is a conspiracy by the governments to do away with money altogether and only use credit cards in one form or another which leave a paper trail from source to purchase. Now what business of the government is it to know I went and bought a pack of gum from a convenience store? But they insist they will want to know. As it is now, if you make a big price purchase you have to fill out paperwork so the government is notified. You cant just walk in with $40,000 cash and buy a truck without that paperwork. 1984.
