Happy 100th anniversary to the Russian color photography project (not the actual name, just sums it up nicely).

Seriously, in 1909, some amazingly beautiful and somewhat haunting pictures were taken in Russia in FULL COLOR. Gorgeous stuff, too. You can find the story and pics over at Socyberty. My personal favorite is the Emir of Bukhara, which is now Uzbekistan. This picture was taken in 1911. 694px-Prokudin-Gorskii-19
