The cup of life, well, for some at least. The cup that fulfils, the cup that provides, the cup that completes. This is some fine piece of crockery, looks mid eastern, i knew the exact name for it, now my memory fails me. This kind of photo demands the lowest 'f' possible to get the lovely bokeh etc..
i like your presentation with the focus on the textures..
sip it hot my friend !

Quite the impressionist stuff, the soft lines, you are treading the thin line between subjectivity and the absolute, the know and the unknown. the light is just surreal, the perfect 'f' for such a mood.
this could very well be a painting..

This bridge is very pretty, and I can see that fall colors come to Moscow early in the season. We usually don't get peak color here in NYC until early November. The two couples walking in opposite directions are a nice addition to the scene. I like the WS photos, too. :-)

This is an interesting gate. At first I wondered about the title of this photo, but now I realize it's a Cyrillic "P". :-) The warm sunlight illuminates this spot very nicely, and it's a bonus to have Serghei and his wife in the frame.

I love reflections, and this photo is like a dream. The softness of the reflections, and the way they move down the image, is beautiful. Having those two birds in the lower part of the frame adds just the right detail in the perfect spot. Very nice!

This scene is very dreamy...and very cold!! Having no people around makes it seem like you are all alone in an arctic fairy tale. I like the lovely, blue hues and the stillness in this photo. If I let my imagination run wild, it seems like the people who made those footsteps in the snow have disappeared, leaving their icy and ghostly presence on deck!

Great symmetry and interesting patterns in this photo. It looks so clean - more like a museum than a metro station! The lighting must have been tricky, but you handled it well. The Moscow metro certainly seems like a very photogenic place. :-)

I've been enjoying your photos from Russia. I really like this traditional church. The wooden design is beautiful. This side view really shows us all the details, and I think the gray sky suits this scene well. Thanks for adding the WS photos, too. :-)

Great view of the Manhattan Bridge. It gets neglected sometimes while people focus on its more famous neighbor. :-) I like the red boat that's going by, and I can see so many famous buildings, including my favorite Chrysler Building. Yes, the air in NYC can get very hazy during the summer, but that makes this scene even more realistic. :-)
