This photo was taken near the "Prospekt Mira" ("Avenue of Peace") underground station.
Just one more capture of daily life in Moscow...
This is a tram going directly twards me, so in a few moments I had to step aside. It's good that it was about to stop at the tram stop :) I wasn't risking my life, anyway :)
I wanted to post this photo a bit later but finally and unexpectedly I decided to do it today after I saw a photo of Moscow taken at the same place... but "under the ground" :)
This tram and McDonald's is what you will see "upstairs", above the ground, in the city, if you get off at this underground station :)
So I decided to link these two photos, they go well together, imho :)

Мне очень нравится настроение фотографии и композиция=)) (хотя я и не любитель Макдональдса=)

Thanks for linking the two photos. Interesting to see what is above "this underground station". In turn I am adding this photo to the McDonald's theme where I have one photo. Another interesting daily life photo of Moscow which many visitors will never get to see. Marlene

Nice daily life photo, looks cheerful with predominating red color :) This part of Moscow reminds me of one part of Belgrade, there's a big similarity between those two places :) Good idea to link your photo to the other one to see how it looks like up and down :)
Have a nice day!

I see the meaning behind this photo when i look at the workshop. A fancy subway underground with nice architecture and a typical "M" Empire sign above
Good idea with the workshop

this is a very interesting and joyful shot of the daily life in your city.
the perspective of curved road makes nice depth in it. and colors are beautiful.
I like street cars very much, of course far than subways. the view from train and the slow speed are significant for my spirit. and one ambience or nostalgy is in trams.
my shot of it is here;

Good pov to show a corner from the busy city, detail to show transport system with different type of vehicles sharing a road, nice to see the Mc Donald building paint in soft color, distinct image, good shoot.

Bonita foto, de la vida cotidiana me gusta el predominante del color rojo y su fuerte intensidad, el contraste esta genial, buena captura.

I like this aspect city full of wires, trams and congestion. The point McDonalds is a reference to the West that has become the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Pleasant view, but I'd have liked PS removed in the elbow of the person who is on the left side, because it is a detail that distracts. On the other, an interesting scene.
Greetings from your friend Colombian

I am not a Mac Donald's fan, but I can say that its nice to see it in Moscow, since it represents a lot to those who grew up during the cold war, and you are maybe a better person to talk about it, since I live in Brazil, so far from it all. Its good to see the world walking in the same direction, at least in this case, and I guess there is a little more happyness for the people. The Internet and TE also represents these new values and its nice to be in touch with the Russian people! My parents went to Russia a few years ago and they love! I would like to do the same one day, and I am happy to see your photos while dreaming, specially those showing daily life, like this one. I feel traveling. The lights are nice, as the brilliant colours and you've composed very well with the red colours.

Another enjoyable shot from the streets of Moscow. Thanks for that. There are lots of fine red elements going through most of the picture. And a bit of a pink wall.

I never imagine see this kind of view in Moscow. Details are very interesting as in the charm electric red bus.

Also a nice photo with the tram. Good composition - tram seems to actually going. And it is good that it is only the left part of the image, not the middle. It is good to see her other life in the city.
