Sorry, typo...I meant that I don't know of many photos taken by Alexei OF Maria...or of anyone else, really.

I know, she always looks so happy and surprised. I think the photographer was probably Anastasia.
Come to think of it, I'm not aware of very many photos taken by Alexei, or Maria (or and of his sisters, really). Does anybody know of one?

Thanks very much...that's a good site. The second one, to be more specific, has Alexei and Nicholas with a few other men, standing outside. Alexei is talking to Nicholas (his mouth is moving) and I think after that shot it cuts to a shot of cars or something. The talking part is only one scene in the whole video.

He seems to be more of a 'hands-on' type of person to know, going to see things, drawing, making models of trains and ships, physical activity outdoors.
Kind of unfortunate considering his illness.

Can anyone locate some home videos of Alexei for me? There are two that come to mind that I can't find...
1. Alexei walking his dog and eating snow.
2. Alexei standing next to Nicholas and talking to him.
Thank you...I can't find either of these! I haven't seen very many videos of Alexei.

Anastasia in a letter to a friend during the journey to Siberia:
"Once in the evening I was looking out, we stopped near a little house...A little boy came to my window and asked 'Uncle, please give me, if you have got, a newspaper?' I said 'I am not an uncle, but an aunty and have no newspaper.' At first I could not understand why he did call me 'Uncle' but then I remembered that my hair is cut and I an the soldiers laughed very much."

I thought this was funny...the original letter was in English with some spelling issues.

Nena, thank you so much! And yes, the one I'm talking about with the stone, is in the Crimea. Post it if you want. Thanks!

Poor Maria!

This one looks like the photographer got her by surprise :D

This is a useful thread...I saw these pics somewhere but I can't find them!

-Tatyana sitting on her knees next to Alexandra, who is in a chair...I think Tatyana is wearing a black dress but I'm not sure.
-The Imperial family standing near a big stone wall, almost like a cave or something, with steps...that one's kind of hard to explain.
-OTMA with bouquets of flowers, standing on a step.
-Olga and Tatiana on a ship (Standart?) standing and holding hands next to one of those big dark cylinder things on board.

I can't find these...thanks for your help!

You're right, wow. I never thought of that.

Here's my latest!! I felt the urge to do a commemorative portrait since the findings of the remains was released!! Its Alexei and Anastasia (as I believe its her in the grave). It's the photo of them from 1916 during their trip to Mogilev. Enjoy!

Alexei and Anastasia:

That's amazing, I thought it was a photo at first! It's so detailed.

Grand Duchess Alexandra Nikolaevna, based on the famous portrait by Christina Robertson.
That's so cool! I really like how you used the lines, it's very unique-looking.
