Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.
I thought about Dr. Zhivago today. The impression it made on me when I saw it first. How it influenced my first overseas trip to Russia when I was in college. Like the United States it is a country of big skies and wide endless tracks of land. This painting captures a sense of the place I visited and the mystery and charm of the film. Another world.
Painting by Ryabushkin. 1903.
