Not Creepy

Not Creepy

Russian Revolution in Color

Today’s Blogging 101 assignment: respond to a prompt. Today’s Daily Post prompt is a photo challenge: show us something creepy. Coincidentally, the most interesting thing I’ve read this morning was a post on Mashable about a Russian photographer, Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, who devised a process for creating full-color photographs in the early 1900s. He won a commission to travel throughout the czarist Russian empire, capturing its many peoples in photographs. They are stunning! ┬áIt is amazing how much more immediate and contemporaneous photos seem when they are in color. These long-vanished people look out at us from a century or more ago and they come alive.

I don’t like creepy things and since the purpose of this blog is for me to focus on the positive, I’ve chosen to adapt this prompt and share these photos which I find fascinating, not creepy.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Creepy.”
