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.

Honey seller

Though the young man is clothed in Kyrgyz national shirt and hat, he is not of Kyrgyz nationality. He is Russian, who came with his boss from Kyrgyzstan to sell honey at the annual Honey Fair held in Moscow in 2010.

An old married couple in Central Asia

The spouses had become street vendors long before they got pensioned off. They worked at Kadamzhay antimony plant till their old age and kept on trading on the street. Unlike many other former antimony plant workers they became rather rich thanks to private trade and even used to lend money to many other inhabitants of Kadamzhay settlement. My brother photographed them 3 years ago.

Old spouses

The spouses were our neighbors when we lived in Kadamzhay. The old man died last year and after his decease his wife moved to Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyz Republic, and lives there with her daughter.
