Valeriya… …at the window… …just one wonderful square meter to play with light…
“And I’ve missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won’t you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don’t you come on over Valerie?”
That day I met Kate (Katya) the first time. She never did a photo session before. Our idea was to copy a drawing of my painter-friend Alekseij.
After the work was done she wanted more. “I love to see me on photos” …wow. – I’ve rarely met anyone who looked at their own photos with such natural joy. That was contagious .. ..and so we continued the next hours. What a day.
Katya, thank you for all that joy. I’m looking forward to realize all the plans and ideas we had.
Катя, спасибо тебе за всю эту радость. Я с нетерпением жду реализации всех планов и идей, которые у нас были.
Valeriya, my co-worker friend. Her first photo shoot.
Dear Lera, thank you for this delightful photo shooting. It was wonderful to work with you. 🙂
The nine y/o Rita and me didn’t met before… ….but after 30 seconds we knew that we both will have a lot of fun to do that photo shooting.
Happy birthday to you. All the best for you and stay as nice, open, curious, lively, positive, sensitive and stunning as you are !!!
…and, YES, of course you become an actress. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Molokovo Orphanage, 350 km north of Moscow deep in the hinterland.
The cooperation with this orphanage started in 2014. What to say… …it’s just about sharing, reaching hands, joy and love.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
“Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
Thanks to the helping hands of my friends of the JOHN SHOW and Aleksandra Nurmetova from TUZ Theatre.
Special thanks to Michail Anatoljevitsh and all the other good hearts of the Molokovo Orphanage. YOU all are the real heroes !!!
model: Svetlana Jelchaninova (Спасибо Света, это было очень весело !!!)
Thank you, Sveta, for the fun telling this story together!
Kamchatka / Russia.
East… ..very far east… …57°North / 160°East… …only 20° to the international date line. A eight hour domestic flight inside Russia. Eight hours time difference to Moscow time… ..but still inside Russia.
Fishing, gold mining , wild bears, volcanoes… …a trip that makes you feel far away… ..in distance and time. Priceless.
Frankly spoken… …clubbing and Markus usually do not go hand in hand… …except there is a reason. A very good reason. 🙂
KRISTINA is a good friend of us since years and we enjoyed this night at the CITI club a lot! Dancing, photographing and a lot of champagne. That was fun.
She is a wonderful and charming person with a very good heart. I guess that is attracting attention. You have to meet her. A few weeks ago on our flight to Moscow she has been addressed by everyone… …and everybody was wondering about my role in our ‘relationship’. So my role switched in just two hours between “..your husband”, “..your father”, “..your boyfriend” to “..your friend”… …and that is a role which I can except with pleasure. 😉
“Ночь, улица, фонарь, аптека,
Бессмысленный и тусклый свет.
Живи ещё хоть четверть века —
Всё будет так. Исхода нет.
Умрёшь — начнёшь опять сначала
И повторится всё, как встарь:
Ночь, ледяная рябь канала,
Аптека, улица, фонарь.”
“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,
than alone in the Light”
Thanks for the walk with a friend, Lena.
🙂 …of course they did not stare at me… …but I kindly asked if I could take a portrait of them…. …and they mostly agreed. I didn’t know these people in person… …but I know Aleksei Jogolev (#05) and this event was the opening of the exhibition of his paintings in Tver/Russia. Excellent paintings… …and excellent people.
Andrea and me got the great chance to participate at TANZOMANIA’s final practice for the European Grand Prix in Tallin at Johns dancing school in Tver/Russia. But don’t worry, we didn’t dance… …we just documented it by our photos.
This European Grand Prix was a great success for TANZOMANIA. Several gold an silver medals. Wow, congrats to you all!!!
But what I admire the most is, with how much enthusiasm and lifeblood John, Olya, Alyona, Losha and Losha convey the spirit of dancing to the children. My deepest respect to you all for create such a precious activity.
Please find Andreas story here at JETAMELE.
All of you a happy new year!
May we all enjoy the good things
And face the bad things with a confident smile
Lena Fomina, actress in Tver/Russia
What would you do if you got the chance to do a photo shoot with an actress? Would you make up a story? Reenact scenes?
Or would you dare to tell the most exciting and intimate story? – So we did!
THIS IS THE LENA STORY.
Lena, thank you so much for your smiles and your sadness, for the play and the truth, for the distance and the nearness… …and of course for just beeing Lena.
Лена, большое спасибо за твои улыбки и твою грусть, за игру и правду, за расстояние и близость … … и, конечно, за то, что ты просто была Леной.
