Let's take a break from modern-day consumption for a minute. I'm in love with these photos (found via swoond) by Russian photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944). He had a technique where he took 3 black and white images in quick succession, each with a different colored filter, and then later combined them to create beautifully saturated color images. Over 100 years ago.
I don't pretend to understand the technique, but the photos are stunning, and it's hard to believe they are over a century old. Regardless of their age, they leave me speechless.
