That one is wonderful! I'd only seen very low quality versions, so this is the first time I was able to make out the expression on Tatiana's face.

All of them lying on the hay like that.  Cute.

Is Anastasia taking a drag from a cigarette or just holding her hand up to her face for whatever reason?

What would you say that expression is? It looks to me like she's squinting a bit from sun in her eyes.

Yes, the other girls are resting but it's like Tatiana might have opened her eyes and then turned away from the sun when the photo was taken.

Oh my gosh! This is my new favorite OTMA photo, bar none! There even seems to be a hint of a smile behind Tatiana's straight face and Maria and Anastasia couldn't possibly look lovelier. So thankful to that wonderful person who is making it possible for us to access so many new photos. I truly regret slacking off on my photo cataloging now! I have so much to catch up on!

Almost nothing pleases me more than photos from 1917-1918!

Me as well!

Here goes one in better quality than usual



ГА РФ, ф. 683 оп. 1 д. 125 л. 16 фото 254

Not only  better quality, but of the more unusual photo taken at that time. The one seen for years,  TN is lying down too
LOVE  Marie in the boat and the look she flashes ...one gets a sense of her.. power..what else would you call it?

We are in a Romanov photo golden age :)

Marie's power is her cuteness anywhere and whatever expression she has on her face - be it cheerful or sour, one would like to pinch her cheeks because of her cuteness : D
And yes, I agree with you in that Romanov photo golden age... all thanks to the generous hearted people like Ilya (who heartily shares the scans straight from GARF, huwahh) and Ally (who tirelessly shares her finds from various websites), and everyone of those I forgot to mention, you know who you are. Love you all from APTM forum family <3
