Howdy -- long time, no post --

Looking for a picture I thought I had saved, not having any luck finding it online -- it's an oil painting of a young (not-gray-haired) priest, cassocked, long hair, long prayer rope around his wrist, very russian looking, with cross and icons on wall behind him. He appears to be leaning back against his desk or the wall, exasperated and tired (think like he's just come from a particularly taxing parish council meeting  ;D ).

Any links to jpegs would be appreciated!  Thanks!

Sadly no Orthodox repository online for portraits.

I did find this, however it is missing some of your description:

On a blog somewhere.

And definitely a priest, not a older monk (bishop, judging by staff) like what you posted.

OK definitely a priest then. I've tried a combination of words into google, but I get the weirdest images.

Can you recall some of this blog? How popular was it? Anything about it that stood out to you? Was it an Orthodox blog?

If you could possibly recall the domain name that would help. Unfortunately, since google doesn't support explicit use of a regular expressions, we would have to figure out the exact domain name.

After that, it would much more manageable to find the image.

Hey buddy you know what I found out the other day? That tineye is a better image searcher than google is. Actually let me clarify that statement, a reverse image searcher.

Nope.  Went through hard drive.  No dice.  No recollection of domain name.

Date you remember you last saw the photo on this blog? More specific the better.

I love investigating stuff.

I wish I had old school alta vista. Was a much more robust search engine, but because of that not as robust an index.

You have no idea how helpful one of your old posts has been when it comes to googling. I didn't even know you could search like how you did.

Never heard of AltaVista, must have been before my time.

It had more robust options like near and some implementation of XOR among other stuff.

Given the more "static" content of the time or if dynamic content, the greater compliance in honesty in information creation dates, the time delimiters were fantastic.

I wonder how much google would have to charge us to allow us to have access to an index which would allow for trivial latency for searches using a relatively robust standard expressions.

I would throw them $10 / month.

Inok - short for Innokentiy or "It's Not OK"?  :-\

It looks like he was just given the obedience to empty the latrines.  For a year.

Wouldn't that be on a par with having to deal with a parish council over and over and over and over?
:laugh:pretty much!
