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.
Khatuna / ხათუნა, or Khatya like we call her, has the meaning ‘lady’ (in persian).
I think I remember that Khatya told us that the georgian meaning is something like ‘fate’….
….however it is… …I know that this wonderful lady and her partner (our friend Bonya) will take fate in their own hand! … and they will be succeed in all respects.
Hey, you both… …long may you run… …and stay forever young.
please see here at JETAMELE how Andrea has seen Khatya.
All of you a happy new year!
May we all enjoy the good things
And face the bad things with a confident smile
“Artists are social sensors and transmitters of ideas”
Since I was a child I love the mysterious feeling being backstage.
It makes you invisible and let you feel this special conspiratorial unity… …because you already know what will happend next.
It makes you excited, alive and confident… …because you have no idea what will happend next.
This is for all the actors and especially for those who will stay invisible.
Thanks to the TUZ THEATER in Tver/Russia for your great performance and the fun we had together.
SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMONTS !!!
Me and Polina met in August in Tver / Russia and we decide to do a photo shooting the next time when I’ll be around. And so we did.
I was impressed by her talented und versatile way to act in a portrait shooting. Some things just like happen like that. You don’t need to plan. You don’t need to talk… …you just let things happen.
A delightful day with this wonderful person. Thank you, Polina! …and I hope we will meet again.
this is for you. We believe in you! You will make your way! …just pure believe in yourself!
FAITH, HOPE, LOVE
Victoria & Markus
Machen wir uns nichts vor. Der Sommer ist vorbei. Trotzdem ist es schön die Sonnenstrahlen zu geniessen und in den Winterschlaf von Tver/Russland einzutauchen.
“Hibernation is a covert preparation for a more overt action.”
“Der Winterschlaf ist eine verdeckte Vorbereitung für eine weit offenere Aktion.”
…so I enjoyed my stroll through the wintry sleepy city of Tver, to look forward for all the surprises the city will keep ready for me.
This is Kristina from Moscow. Smart, intelligent and charming. A really nice person. Purser at AEROFLOT airlines.
All this nice moments of 2017. A good year.
Thanks for all!
