Having Fun! / Re: Coloured Pictures XXXIII
« on: December 31, 2009, 11:39:07 AM »
This one's a little odd...colored with a photo-altering program

I colored this one of Maria with pencils

I bet she'd love shows like that, possibly ANTM and other fashion-related things too! I wonder how she'd do in a career in fashion?

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Main talent?
« on: December 31, 2009, 11:31:34 AM »
From what I've gathered, all the girls (OTMA) were talented in music and art, but I'm wondering about Tatiana's main hobby...what was she best at and and what did she seek out to do? Apparently Marie enjoyed painting particularly, Olga was quite a reader and poet, etc.
Was there one unique thing she enjoyed doing above all, and was very good at? Her "main talent"?

Olga Nicholaievna / Re: Olga's named day picture of " David"

That's a funny story...I'm also surprised the picture was published.

"Then I have read elsewhere it was a photo of the Prince of Wales, the future Duck of Windsor"
I started laughing when I read this!

I'm glad you like it!

Even later, 8:15
It seems all there is to do is take care of Alexei, help him eat and write. And of course, worry worry worry. What if Father Grigory tells Mama & Papa about what Olga said? What then? When are Mama & Papa going to be home from Moscowarsich*? WHERE are the doctors? Alexei is having his bath while Mashka reads to him. So, while I have free time, I shall look for Gleb Botkin to see if he knows where his father, the doctor, is.

*when i wrote this i thought moscow might have been called something different back then, how silly of me.

more later, if you would like more.

These sound like something she would write! :D
Ohh if you do ave any more, post them! Do you have any "by Tatiana"?

I've got a few more I want to find...
Here's an example...I've found these of Tatiana and Maria but can't seem to find them for Olga or Anastasia. They're all similar to these, with the signatures at the bottom. Actually I'm not certain whether these are original photos or were edited to look like this, with the signatures, but here--

This is Tatiana's (of course).
Thanks for the help! I'm working on a drawing and need these.

I like that! Whenever I try to write things like that I get too into describing food, conversations, clothes, etc. and write that for a long time, so then I get tired of writing and just stop...I'm not very patient :D

You should post the story, that sounds really neat!

Thank you! :) That question was bothering me

Nice. I like how the sisters have nearly the same positions in each of the photos. You know those slow motion
 films of flowers opening? That's what it's like to view these two pictures together .

That's a neat idea! I didn't think of that. Also, in reverse, it could go from the bottom picture to the top, looking like they're drawing closer together as they get older and face more adversity or something :D
That might be a cool icon idea

Having Fun! / Re: Yuliya Novikova--Olga Nikolaevna???
« on: December 31, 2009, 10:28:39 AM »
That's seems like they would have had it figured out!
In Nicholas and Alexandra I thought they could have tried to make the actors portraying OTMA resemble the real people a little far as I know no one had hair that dark, and there wasn't really any specific distinction.

Were they really? How were they 3 years off?

Having Fun! / Balloon incident?
« on: December 31, 2009, 08:10:29 AM »
I read somewhere that one of the Grand Duchesses (meaning OTMA) was out walking with her nurse and demanded that the nurse take a balloon from a child on the street and bring it back for the GD in this true? If so, who was it and when did this take place?
Kind of funny story :)

Even just composers would be good
