It's interesting to group photos by the small pair's out fits...for while they were at the hospital often, how often was a professional photographer there to snap their picture? ... as seen in the mirror behind Marie ( probably more than I imagine! lol! ) and such photos could be from the same day.

Weird, I’ve never notice that man in the mirror before!
Here is the full picture:

It's interesting to see them looking at him and via the mirror, he looking at them!...I wonder if he was a court photographer and could be identified?  It would be interesting if some of the same patients appeared in each photo containing the Little Pair that you recently  posted.Thanks for this full photo. =) At this time, between their public lives and their private photo taking , the Romanovs were likely the most photographed people on earth!

He almost doesn't look like a photographer though... he's wearing similar robes to the other patients. Of course, if he was another patient, I don't know why they wouldn't have put him in the picture as well...

Yes, he is wearing a robe like the patients, so I highly doubt he is a photographer. Unless, of course, Imperial Photographers wore robes in 1915!  :D But really, I think that he probably just got in there by accident.

I love Maria's smile here:

Oh, me too! She is so cute! How old would she have been there? Eight?
This one is simply lovely:
Cropped from the Imperial Family planting trees around 1911. The only decent part of an otherwise very blurred photograph!

You are welcome. I was pleasantly surprised how well it turned out. With printed photos, one never knows. Here is a moment after your photo ( I'm guessing)  . In your photo, Olga seems to be yelling about something. In this  one,  her great uncle has turned to speak to her and is rewarded with one of her sweet smiles. A pictorial illustration of those words that describe Olga to be hot tempered, but easily placated =)

Wow -- thanks, Annie!! It's been ages since I've come across a new photograph around here!
It almost looks as if the man is touching Tatiana's face by the way it's composed.

 It was a postcard on eBay! One just never knows

This one would  work in the photos of Romanovs in photos of Romanovs thread as the 1913 family portrait is above Marie's head

Thanks! I finally rememberd who the gentlman is. It's Nicky's uncle, Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich.
I can't tell if Alexis is in awe of his great uncle or his yelling sister! lol!
