The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Cali: It's a photo that's been colorized, not a painting. I found it on Google Photo, where I find most of the stuff I put up here.

Mia: I'll see which other pics strike my fancy.

Thanks for the comments.

It's not a colorized photo, it is an original color photo. Prokudin-Gorskii used filters and mirrors to produce three negatives for each color channel. Just Google for his name and you'll find the entire collection at the US Library of Congress (loc.gov).

I stand corrected, though the Website on which I had found it had said that it was colorized . . .
Having seen more of his work, as well as how he did it brings out far greater meaning to the image though.
Dank u wel voor de toelichting.
