Did you know that the Russian photographer Sergey Mikhaylovich Prokudin-Gorsky was taking beautiful colour photographs 100 years ago? I had no idea until I stumbled across this post with several examples and an explanation of how he accomplished it. Head on over and take a look at Russia 100 years ago. Most of our history is in black and white so it is an interesting experience to see it in colour. It makes you think that they weren’t actually that much different than us.
