One way you can tell it is a more modern shot is the top of the bear can, it is a flip tab not a pull top. Those came into use mid 80's or so. That means at the latest this would be a mid 80's shot.

Beer can is alum. with part of a tab sticking up on top. So, it isn't a pull tab. That makes it early to mid 80"s at the oldest.

Those aren't "colorized" photos. They are from 4X5 inch Kodachrome transparencies. They're positives direct from the camera.
