POINT BLANK: A WALK IN THE DARK

“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.”

(Aleksander Blok)

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,

than alone in the Light”

(Helen Keller)

Thanks for the walk with a friend, Lena.


POINT BLANK: ICE FISHING

Calm, balanced and a bit taciturn was the first approach with the ice fishermen. But after a brief chat about technique, wheater and the right fishing lures the ‘ice’ had melted. They let me do my shots to capture the peace and serenity of this hobby. But I think that ‘hobby’ is is not the right term. Some concider it as sports. Some as hunting…  …and for some is it a complementary livelihood. This images I took in late February at the frozen river Volga in the city of Tver/Russia.
