We now see Egypt, where they erect a temple and pyramid for a new-found goddess, the almighty Maria. Lol, true though.

Video of 'The one and only Maria' from the Arizona version of hilarious TV series Total Wipeout. The pendulum stunt at the end won her first prize at the Total Wipeout awards.

The full of the picture can be found on Ally's Czech site, I believe...

Love this one!:

Love this one!:



 

This picture always makes me laugh. Doesn't it seem like everyone is completely miserable and the only one smiling is Willy? Even though the children have received gifts from him they look as though they are about to cry.

I know! Apparently they all felt uncomfortable around the Kaiser (they had every reason to be - he was about to wage war on their country) but he seems oblivious to this!
'They look as though they're about to cry' - Alexei especially.

I don't agree.They seems rather bored, and Anastasia has a mischievous expression at her face. The only one who seems over the point of staring to cry is Alexei. But maybe it's an optical delusion. I think it was summer and all people feel miserable dressed as they were in the middle of a heat wave.  ;D

As for the war, I think it lasted some time to begin, yet. When the WWI started, Anastasia had 13, and Alexei , 10. They didn't seem to have this age in the pic.

Sorry if someone has already posted this one!

This is my favorite. It's rare for OTMA (or any royalty, really!) to be smiling this much :)

You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

THANK YOU! I have been looking for the larger version of this picture for ages! They are it on Livadia, but Olga is cut out of it.

Often it's interesting to enlarge even a well known photo. Here is just Marie of the famous Little Pair in the Tsar's study photo.
What I had not realized until I enlarged it was Marie is writing in this photo. So perhaps they are doing lessons . Amazing loveliness as always

I have always thought that this one was taken somewhere abroad, probably England in 1908.

I think it was taken at Livadia when Kaiser Wilhelm came to visit.

Indeed, Annie dear—it's on Wilhelm's yacht, Hohenzollern.

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

Oh, I'm sorry. Please excuse my spelling, I was very unclear. I meant to say they have the photo on livadia.org, not that they were in Livadia at the time. Thanks for correcting me :)

Do you mean Olga or Tatiana? Tatiana is sat on the right next to Anastasia. I wish we knew whose dolls were whose!

Great finding, Annie! Is that the picture where Anastasia and Maria are on the boat?

Yes, the one where AN is looking up...and is quite close to the camera lens.
