PhotoHunt - Backwards

DSC_0063-2
A typical scene of street vendors throughout Moscow. I spotted these fellas engaged in a discussion with one facing forward and two facing backwards. I wonder what the discussion was about. Hopefully they are not grumbling about those darn tourists always capturing their photo.

And here's a picture of me facing backwards braving the snow while heading for the banks of Moscow River.

  1. When like me a hot weather 365 days, I really enjoy seeing people wearing those thick clothes ... it seems so cooling and comfortable under the winter sunrays !

  3. Fantastic photos, maybe the two facing backwards are haggling over the price and trying to secure a discount and the vendor is having nothing to do with it. You definitely are a brave one :-).

  13. Looking at that snow makes me appreciate the sporadic bursts of warm weather and sunshine we are getting in London.

    The old guy looks like he wants a fight or is about to draw a gun like a cowboy...

  15. Great photos both! Re the comments re tourists: get the feeling that Russia still reckons it doesn't get as many tourists as it deserves! ;b

  20. Hi Luna,

    Those are Russian nesting dolls that come in unique styles and different sizes with one doll inside the other. they are very popular and they are available everywhere in the city.
