Walking & Skating
As I said before, along the Angara River runs a Promenade with trees, providing friendly shadow where local people enjoy the sunny afternoon, well-dressed girls are very common in Russian as in others Nordic countries
These ones were not happy with me taking a shot, I noticed it at the same moment with time to said Sorry, the photo safe in my camera, I continue walking

¡Dios mío! Todas las Siberianas son modelos!

Nice daily life shot, and not at all the usual image that one would expect from Siberia. Depending on the place, photographing people can be problematic, so it is good that you could walk away :-)!

Looking like that those women should be very pleased to have their photos taken and shown to the whole world, but I wouldn't trust the guy behind them. A very interesting and slightly unexpected picture from Siberia.

whilst I recognise that the man was in your original frame I wonder if it would be a stronger image if he were cropped out, so that the emphasis stayed with the ladies,or perhaps there is a hidden message here...
They do make a very striking image.
Very nicely done.
Kind regards Les.

Hi Maria. i was wondering when I would see someone in your photos that actually has Siberian native blood and the young beauty on the right (not the man) shows such ancestry. I have heard it said that if one scratches the surface of a Russian, one finds a Tartar underneath. she is trying hard to look European with her dyed hair, but I imagine her with lustrous, black hair. What ever the true colour, both she and her friend are stunning.The soft light amongst the birch trees offer a nice background. Regards. Klaudio.

Another nice photo from your Siberia travel. The ladies are in excellent soft light. I like your side viewpoint. The arrangement with the man in the BG is excellent. Well done. Greetings, Miro

They know how relax and kill the times and their postures seem to suggest that, their colors, prop, placement and pose all contribute to the picture so very well detailed, crispy sharp in excellent clarity and colors. But I love the peaceful settings and atmosphere depicting the actual situation as the elements work smoothly together. This is another excellent doc shot of street people so well recorded vividly. well done.

Don't feel sorry Maria, we are interested in watching the whole episode unfolding. the boy in blue is in a fix, whether to react or not. The lady in green top seems to be enjoying her moment of grace, where as the lady with long hair is a little nervous being caught pocket-handed.
This is the beauty of street photography, to evoke different emotions in different persons.
No doubt some danger is also there, as I was once held by the Ex Army officials when I was clikcing them in the Golf Club at Chandigarh.
Nevertheless the enthusiasm continues......
Cheers for the adventure.

Hi Hola dear Maria
Wow wonderful portrait image, I also should go there as soon as possible. You get so natural amd casual pose wit your delicatation. a little over exposure makes very good impact.
Thanks a lot and have a good Friday! Takero

Jolies silhouettes et jolies robes très colorées, bon contraste avec la présence de cet amateur de roller, la lumière et ses contrastes sont bien gérés.
ourania (32031) 2013-08-02 10:46
a very attractive, interesting and amusing picture due to the attitudes of the three people portrayed, their response to your lens. Your bold approach is impressive, you really changed -if only for a moment- the course of these people's lives and thoughts and its interesting to see their reactions. Maybe this moment brought out the essence of their character:) How differently they're dealing with your surprise! Let's call this picture a study:) Lighting and colours are natural and lovely, your experience in street captures shows in your composition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Un ambiente muy moderno y cosmopolita en esta composicion, las chicas son muy atractivas y van muy veraniegas y juveniles en su indumentaria, lo mismo que el chico de los patines.
Bonito ambiente, con el entorno de ese parque.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y buena nitidez.
Bonita muestra de la gente de este remoto rincon del mundo.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Belles silhouettes et élégances de ces deux jeunes filles, l'homme plus sportif avec ces rollers, le regard vers toi, deux scènes différents , bien présenter

Reading the note, came in corrolation to what i thought when opened the thumbenail: The young lady in green was happy to put up a smile, while the one on her left (right on pic.) gave an inquisitive look, as asking "why me..."
Nice dynamic photo, the guy skating added speed to the whole.
Buen fin de semana,

Awesome capture of those beautiful ladies out for a walk in what looks like a nice day. Good lighting and nice details. I think it's a little over exposed, otherwise well done, tfs.
fabbs99 (16467) 2013-08-03 22:46
Beautiful tall girls walking in a serene surrounding.Very nice perspective and good framing along with nice colors and depth of field , excellent quality overall, as always.TFS.Very well done.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-08-04 14:51
That's another great shot from your subject,about SIberia.Nice lightning usage and perfect expression on these ladies' faces.Nice framing and POV.Well done!
Have a nice week
mkamionka (30694) 2013-08-05 5:16
you are still in a bit better situation by being a woman. If it was me taking the photo of these girls I could count on a stronger reaction from them, not speaking about my wife adding to it later.
Very well done!

Otra optima foto mostrando dos bellezas de Siberia.
Tu captaste sus portes y miradas con maestrìa como se fueran modelos en un desfile de moda.
Pienso que el patinador se quedà atras a proposito :-)
Escena hermosa que embelleza la naturaleza al rededor.
s_lush (16134) 2013-09-13 2:58
I like this shot very much. It shows both beauty of Russian girls and sporting activity of Russian men. In addition, symbolic Russian trees, birches are seen in the background. Excellent presentation Russian daily life!
jmdias (56073) 2013-11-02 8:32
mismo con las modelos no mucho felices creo que la foto está muy buena con la inclusión del hombre y otros detalles del parque alrededor. mismo con ropas modernas me parece que hay algo de antiguo en la apariencia de estas niñas.
fritzi007 (6047) 2014-05-05 13:11
an incredible looseness, very beautiful photo with high quality!

Добрый день, мой друг,
Looks like a lovely day for a walk, or blade I suppose. :) I can't believe these young ladies would be upset by having their picture taken...in fact, they're both smiling!? I would be more concerned about the gentleman behind them, he's the one that looks up to no good, following them around all creepy-like. jaja
Despite their objections, you were wise to snap a quick picture, this turned out with great spontaneity and the story behind it helps understand the daily slice of life. I'm really enjoying this mixture of contrast, colors and styles. One red, one blonde, one dark haired...long hair, short hair...dresses, shorts...green, blue...heels, rollerblades...and all coming together for a fun moment and space in time.
This has inspired me, I might just go out for a walk myself. I hope to come across such beautiful ladies too. ;) Hope you are having a nice weekend. Я надеюсь, что вы испытываете хорошие выходные на юг.
Cheers from the top side,
