    yes! That's just FANTASTIC pictures - the true echo of the past!
    Since my early years the idea that all people of the past eras saw this world and each other and felt their reality as we look at the surrounding reality inpressed my imagination! It's so hard to imagine the people and events of the distant past as something real - in whole freshness of live colours - but not like they are depicted at the B&W photos and on the paintings. And looking at these coloured photographs we can see and feel very obviously that these people were absolutelly like we are. On these portraits and landscapes people and places suddenly became contemporary and so ful of life!

    Imagine for a moment that somehow we get the photo picture of eighteenth century! or of a daily life in the middle ages! or from the Roman England!! THat's incrediable!

    Staring at the moon or climbing the tree, listening to the barking dog or feeling the hunger or toothache we all feel or see the same what our forbears did! There is a so great many of things which didn't change since the first day of Creation - and we can feel the link with the people of the past, we can touch the time, hold it in our hands! That's the most wonderful feeling! My most adorable feeling!

    It's SO catching to feel and think what they did in their time - 100 years ago!

    Nice link! Pitty I didn't see the whole exhibition when it was shown in Moscow!
    Я так думаю.

    Наверное, так глубоко, так чётко никогда ещё не доводилось нам видеть прошлое.
    Я так думаю.
