Phone & Beer
At Irkutsk I was at a hotel facing the Angara River, along it run a Promenade with trees , providing friendly shadow for the now warm sun’ s light, benches, where local people enjoy the sunny afternoon, kiosks selling all kind of non-alcohol beverages, really a nice place to stroll
I was going to the Lenin monument (unusual to see him at a statue), our meeting point, when I noticed this girl that seem to be waiting for friends and calling them, beer open and ready to be drink

¡ Qué escena bien! La hermosa luz del sol, el ancho río y la ciudad en el fondo.
Gracias también por los detalles de la cerveza!
Esto es una mujer bonita, vestida para salir de noche. ¿Hablaste con ella?

I like very much this spontaneous capture and simple composition, a nice portrait that also includes an interesting landscape and information about daily life in this place. The placement of the girl is superb, I like how her leaning posture contrasts the dynamism of the perspectives of the scenery. The light falls beautifully on the girl, tha bottles and the view in the background. The colours are very natural and lovely and so well matched. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

A welcoming and very refreshing sight Maria, a beautiful gal and those great looking calorie-filled trio making me thirsty but luckily my good friend mr smirnoff is with me. All very tempting includes the bright river view in the background which looks natural to this shot and abound of rich colours and tones. A nicely framed shot, Congrats.

Espero que toda esa cerveza no fuese toda para la chica..., es un magnifico retrato en un plano medio, que ademas tiene el aliciente de la amplisima vista del rio con la ciudad al fondo.
Un precioso dia de luz y sol, que te da un precioso colorido.
Buena iluminacion y nitidez.
Buen trabajo, me gusta.
Que tengas un buen dia.

never ending story. Excellent snapshot. The lady is in superb light, and playing with her handy. Very typical activity these days. I like to see the inviting beer bottles. I never drank Russian beer. Is it good? Or Russian vodka is better? Nice photo indeed. Greetings, Miro

nice the snapshot with the young woman to looks rather disappointed about the news coming from her mobile phone so and the three beers on the wall.A good reportage shot from Irkutsk.

Style plus élégante de la demoiselle, concentré par son GSM, une belle vue en arrière plan, moins avec les bouteille, mais bon puisqu'elle sont alcool :-)
Belle soirée a toi

Those beers looks very refreshing on a sunny day. Nice capture of the beautiful lady, blue is her color. Good pov and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Maria - Looks like the friends are late! What a great addition to your series. Beautifully photographed with harmonious colours and carefully composed. Warm regards Rosemary

I like the nice light and shadow areas in this with the saturated colour of the blue dress and green bottles. We can imagine the story with the girl, the phone and the beer.
Very well taken,
mkamionka (37241) 2013-08-02 6:42
this girl must like the beer very much, she is already at her 3rd bottle while waiting for the friends.
She does not do that very often though as people drinking a lot of beer are rarely slim.
Very well spotted!
Have a great weekend,

A fine river promende scenery, and well adorned by the presence of the young elegent lady in blue.
Three beers is not a big deal there, but I take the word she had not consumed this all by herself...
The lady face expression beautifully rendered in picture, perfect portrait with the river as BG.

An excellent daily life shot from Russia. The beers are opened ready to be drink with a friends.
Great diagonal composition as well colors, light, sharpness and interesting note.
Have a nice day,

Thanks God, nobody will ever succeed to convert Efes Fusion into "virtual beer"!
Quite a refreshing poster due to the casual posture and fog-free surroundings.

You have captured a beautiful panorama of the Angara River, with typical for Russia scene in the foreground. The girl is nice in your picture, but the beer seems to be not, because it is prohibited to drink or even keep it uncorked at public places outdoor (but maybe Irkutskaya Oblast is an exception from this rule). Nevertheless, your shot is great. Excellent presentation of Siberian daily life!

So the smell crossed ocean and half of earth to come to you Maria, thanks for your kind comment
good summer image from Russian far east, that lady is going to drink some beers close to the big Angara river, I like her blue dress, she is busy with her mobile, a brillant daily life scene, Regards

un flagrante muy bueno. me encanta la posición de la niña con la praga moderna en las manos. bonita posiciónn de las botellas con el paisaje al fundo. talvez una versiónn vertical seria buena tambien. GPC.
cuando visitaba rosário he visto algunas botellas abandonadas en una plaza, una lástima que la luz era flaca y la mia foto se quedó mala, hice otra asi en Ushuaia años despues.

Добрый день Maria,
Well, this is your last available picture of Russia for me to comment on, you had better post some new ones soon! :))
Love this simple, unassuming and candid shot. It's something we can all relate to in this day and age. It would seem more appealing to enjoy the views and sunshine on a nice day like this, but so many people prefer to have their faces buried in a phone!?
Odd for me to see open containers of alcohol in public, as that's only permissable in few locations here in the States. Funny enough though, the green bottles are a nice color combination with this young ladies blue dress...which is of course, my favorite color. :) Hope she didn't have to wait too long for her friends....or had she, and those are her bottles lying in wait? jaja Enjoy the rest of the day. Ciao.
Cheers from the sunny skies of Az.,
