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.PhotoHunt
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 !ReplyDelete
haha @ "complaining about darn tourists taking their picture" :PReplyDelete
These are good backward pictures.ReplyDelete
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 :-).ReplyDelete
I remember seeing those same type of dolls sold on the streets of St. Petersburg!ReplyDelete
Hey this is fun. Love the sled pic.ReplyDelete
We've got a new kitten. Come and take a look?
I notice the colourful Russian dolls. Did you get one?ReplyDelete
It is so hot here right now it is refreshing to see the snow! Happy photo hunting :)ReplyDelete
yeah, I bought a few sets of these dolls and they are great additions to my vacation mementos display.
very nice takes on the theme.ReplyDelete
Great shots for the theme. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Lovely photos for backwards. :)ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous weekend!
It looks so cold. Me and snow do not get one... I usually contrive to fall over and hurt myself!ReplyDelete
Great choices for this week.ReplyDelete
Happy weekend to you.
Looking at that snow makes me appreciate the sporadic bursts of warm weather and sunshine we are getting in London.ReplyDelete
The old guy looks like he wants a fight or is about to draw a gun like a cowboy...
I like the colorful doll picture!ReplyDelete
Good finds for the hunt this week. Snow in July (that is truly backwards for us in the USA.)ReplyDelete
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! ;bReplyDelete
love the snow picReplyDelete
May @ http://amayzing.me
*shiver* I like it when the temperature goes backwards up the thermometer. Hate cold :)ReplyDelete

nice take LR! how are you?ReplyDelete
Only now I get to sneak again...I am soooo missing blogging and reading all other blogs.
anyway mylil boy has discovered he can walk backwards too! cute!
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.
Great to see you've found the time to blog despite your very busy schedule. Thanks for dropping by my blog today. it's good to see you again in the blogopshere.
That second picture makes me feel dizzy!ReplyDelete
Good take on the theme :)
Probably said 'here comes the tourists let's lets mark up the price 50% more'..hahaha. Wow you mean the river is covered with snow or have reached the banks already?ReplyDelete

that's a good guess. this picture can definitely share a thousand words! we were walking down to the river bank when my hubby took this picture of me.
Nice photo of the street vendors! Haha! Yeah, maybe they are complaining about you taking their photos! : )ReplyDelete
Love the second photo!
Cool idea/title. They ARE probably talking about you and that's why their bacs are to you!ReplyDelete
LOL! I'm sure they were happy to be snapped, esp by a great photographer like you! :)ReplyDelete
I wanna touch and feel snow too, it has been years!!!!!! :(ReplyDelete
I forgot if they are called Marushka dolls? I have a set as a present. I envy your adventure work!ReplyDelete
