Listvyanka, translated "larch village", a small settlement where women work painting (previous post), gardeing, not playing golf or bridge, for sure
The village is a port on Baikal Lake, from where all kind of boats, ships arrive/leave for excursions to the islands or just a few hours cruise
We have only a morning to do it and there was fog on the lake, so we walk visiting and having lunch in the village, waiting the weather to improve, which did not occur

I am sure this woman's clothes are a lot nicer and brighter than her house. Was her husband playing golf at that moment, or just drinking vodka? What a pity you didn't get fine weather for the Baikal cruise. How sad to have such short time and get it spoiled by the weather.

Hi Maria.Bright colours worn perhaps to brighten an otherwise drab existence? Nice to see this energetic lady growing flowers and enjoying the warmth of the sun which I presume is not a frequent and long staying visitor. Excellent exposure and details. Regards. Klaudio.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which the woman is planting at the garden. She is a typical gentle Russian woman judging from her clothes. I know well that russian woman loves flowers and plants.

I did not know that your trip continued to Russia. This must have been a great vacation, seeing so many exotic and little known places! The woman at work adds literally so much color here. Just the modern car in the back spoils that atmosphere a bit :)

This is another simple image of rural life here, a well balanced composition and the casual stance as she doesn't seem to be taking a bit of notice. Excellent light with some nice detail in the bg, and the splash of brighter vivid colours and green are real feast to the eyes. A stand out shot, well taken, Congrats. TFS

nice to see a photo from Siberia that is very rare here in the site. Colourful the scenery with the old woman to take care of her garden wearing her colourful dresses.

Una imagen esplendida de la vida cotidiana de las labores del campo, en este caso con esta mujer, que destaca con su caracteristica indumentaria de vivos colores, y que da un buen impacto en la composicion.
Muy bien gestionada la luminosidad y una perfecta nitidez para recrearse en los detalles.
Muy buen trabajo.
Saludos muy cordiales.

what wonderful colors, maria!
backbreaking work, i imagine, but she looks warm and cosy and so cheerful in these clothes, a nice contrast to the weather, i imagine.
i love how you have captured these women of siberia, what a special insight you have given us. thank you for sharing these quiet moments with us.

Hola Maria, I haven't noticed you were in Siberia too. What an amazing trip you did. You used the transsibirian railway in all or in parts? it is my dream to do it. And i would have it closer than you from Argentina. I must look much closer at your gallery. My friend was on Baikal lake and for her, it is the most beautiful place in the world.
Nice shot of this woman in her small garden. Interesting scene.
delpeoples (53001) 2013-07-20 5:21
A charming daily life scene you have captured, the colours are lovely and I really like your choice of model. She seems a hard-working, simple and good hearted person. I hope she has a happy life.

Privet Maria Elektrozavodskaya,
You know, it's amazing how engaging your Russia pictures have become since being there myself...but I guess that would only be normal, right? :) I liked them from the first view, but I know have a greater understanding of the visuals and people involved...and seeing a local woman dressed in this manner really has a strong impact in my minds eye. Your note made me laugh too, I'm sure there aren't any sitting around playing cards or out golfing...what a sight that would be, yeah? lol
Just a day in the life of a hard working Russian woman, tending to her garden. Her brightly colored clothing sure stands out against the varying shades of green which fill the frame. A simple moment captured, but a telling look into the real side of life far from the big city. Молодцы, мои коллеги-русский переводчик. (works best in Google. jaja) Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.
Cheers from sunny Q.C.,
