"Very interesting" isn't the half of it, Paul! Thanks for posting.

I was quite startled to find out that the concept of RGB colour separation was already understood in Tsarist Russia - I'd always assumed it was something that only came in with colour television.

Great photos, too!

Apparently the first colour photograph ever taken was as far back as 1861.

Taken by an Englishman... but what did he choose to photograph on this historic moment?

A tartan ribbon. Brick Wall

Thought you two might appreciate hearing that. Wink

Taken by an Englishman, but under the direction of genius physicist James Clerk Maxwell, who was, erm, Scottish.

(I can relate to the photographer - a lot of the things I do, I only do because a Scot tells me to do them. Razz )

wow these are amazing! I love the one of the cathedral.
They remind me a bit of 'dream sequences' in films! Except eveyone seems quite oppressed and serious.

I wonder whether these photos tell us anything new about Russia that we didnt already know?
