Russia in Color

Nothing wealth management related today.

Just something I stumbled across that is quite interesting.

And if it gets your travel juices going, so much the better.


Russia in Color

Russia in color, a century ago, is a photo essay of Russian life back in the day. With a twist:

Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) undertook a photographic survey of the Russian Empire with the support of Tsar Nicholas II. He used a specialized camera to capture three black and white images in fairly quick succession, using red, green and blue filters, allowing them to later be recombined and projected with filtered lanterns to show near true color images. The high quality of the images, combined with the bright colors, make it difficult for viewers to believe that they are looking 100 years back in time – when these photographs were taken, neither the Russian Revolution nor World War I had yet begun.

If you appreciate history, travel, or amazing photography, these photos will impress.

Not your humble blogger, although I do own a very similar bathrobe and sword.
