This post is slightly off topic, but the colors and textures of these images are to amazing not to share. The photos were taken using a special camera with red, green, blue filters to create the stunning colors. I love this image in particular, the richness of the blue robe and the delicate floral print of iris is truly remarkable.
Likewise, this lady’s dress of deep red and blue velvet is such a classic (and royal) color scheme. I love her colorful hat too.
This is my kind of tapestry shop. The richness of the colors, red, and pinks are so sumptuous. And that pattern in the foreground is so timeless and modern it would work in most anyone’s home.
These children robes are amazing. The one on the far right with a mix of pink, purple , yellow and aqua looks like it could be a pattern from an anthropologie dress.
Now this is what I call a church. Vibrant red and white, it commands your attention and the ornate detail is as fine as a faberge egg. To see more of Russia in Color click here and here.
