    Default The Russian Empire was pretty.

    First saw this years ago. Saw it in a topic on another message board and decided to bring it back up. Awesome eh? Shame about the revolution.

    Oh and here's this link which is also somewhat old.

    That second link has some pretty devastating pictures.
    I'd heard of that photographer before. If I recall, he had some exhibit (or was a major contributor) to a gallery in the US on Russia.

    The French did great things there. The Senegalese are too stupid to be allowed to manage their own business.

    Any of you guys ever see the movie "Russian Ark"? The entire film was one shot, and it all took place inside this old famous Russian building, the name of which I forget. Anyway, it had some pretty spectacular looking stuff.

    And the Senegalese totally owned at the 2002 World Cup. So they're awesome.

    IIRC -- that building was The Hermitage in Saint-Petersburg. A museum now. It's truly an impressive place.

    Aw, too bad I already knew these photos, but they're still great.
