Hey!

I think there is no thread about Prokudin-Gorsky.
He took some breathtaking pictures during charist Russia.
He developed his own method to take colour pictures.

pics here:

I second that.

Tbilisi (capital of Georgia) back then


And now


Try to find out that old church (or whatever it is near the cliff, on right) to see what angle the new picture is taken from.

Beautiful Tsarist Russia.  

Horrible that the bolsheviks detroyed it, along with millions of people.
