Big Picture has yet another amazing collection of photographs. This time it consists of color pictures of Russia, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and a few other areas a whole century ago. Some of these images are beautiful. Like this picture of Nikolaevskii Cathedral from southwest in Mozhaisk in 1911.
When I see things like this, it often makes me think about the church and how it abuses and explores the poor people. It’s not only now, it must have always been like this.
Or here is another picture. Pinkhus Karlinskii, eighty-four years old with sixty-six years of service. Photo taken in 1909.
Just think about it! It’s not a painting, but a photograph, and a colored one at that, of someone who was born around 1825! Almost two centuries ago. Wow!
