Tatiana,

Do you happen to know what the object is that Empress Alexandra is holding in her hands in your reply No. 506.

It appears again on the table in front of her in NN. 500 and 522.

At first, I thought it might be a prosphora, but the shape is a bit odd.

I love this photo It has the look of a race about to begin. Olga looks like she is about to say "ON YOUR MARK, READY, SET, GO"  and the look on Marie's face is hysterical.

When I see this photo, my first thought is "False start!" lol!

Tatiana Z, thank you! There are so many gems in this group of photos. I'm especially happy to see photos from the 1913-1914 visits to Crimea that reveal charming new moments from those days.

When I first looked at this photo, I thought Olga's  right hand was on Tatiana's shoulder, either resting there or restraining T . On a more close viewing, it seems like Olga's hand is just in the air, as she tries to balance. False start indeed!

Good catch Rodney! I too assume the hand was on Tatiana's shoulder. But upon further review it looks like she is either getting ready to crouch down or standing up from a crouched position and trying to keep her balance (and movements at a minimum) as the picture is about to be taken.
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...
