Big Dmitrovka Street

This is Big Dmitrovka Street in Moscow (Bolshaya Dmitrovka in Russian). It was photographed on the 9th of May this year by my junior brother. As you probably know, V-Day is celebrated this day every year in Russia.

Railroad station in Vyazma

The town of Vyazma is an important railroad junction between Moscow and the rest of Europe. I live in this town and here are four pictures which I took on August 1st this year, that is 12 days ago, as I was seeing my brother off on the train to Moscow.

Fragrant yellow flowers

Every year in the middle of summer some fragrant yellow flowers appear around our country house. This year they started to blossom too. I don’t know what their name is, but these flowers smell very nicely. If anyone recognizes the flower – please leave a comment telling what the pleasant flower is called.
