… WHAT I WANTED TO SAY BUT NOT YET MANAGED TO ACTUALLY MENTION #3

THE MAKING OF ‘VALKENVANIA’

…is, that today is the 8th of May. A remembrance day about the victory about the fascist Germany and the end of the war 70 year ago.

On that day I took the photos about ‘Valkenvania’ we were on the way to a remote orphanage in the Tverskaja Oblast. Our idea was to offer some help, to give kids attention and love and to show how easy it is to change things with your own two hands.

We are doing that now for years. We are: some hearty russian friends and me who love to give some perspective to young kids living in orphanages.

My russian friends love their country and they are proud of it, like we all do, and it’s such a great feeling to do all this things now united hand in hand.

Vita & Serge, you are real friends to me and you show me that there are no borders between us. Thank you for that!!! Especially on that day, the 8th of May (of course 9th). Thanks for your friendship…  …let’s rock the world.

… WHAT I WANTED TO SAY BUT NOT YET MANAGED TO ACTUALLY MENTION #2

…is, that today for me AGAIN is the ‘GOOD FRIDAY’. No tricks, no time machine…  …it’s just because I’m now in Russia and the orthodox Easter will be celebrated this weekend according to the gregorian calendar. Appropriate for that some photos with CROSSES which I captured here.


… WHAT I WANTED TO SAY BUT NOT YET MANAGED TO ACTUALLY MENTION #1

…is, that I love to travel. One country which I visited for a couple of times is Russia. Russia is fascinating…  …the countryside, the cities, the mentality and of course the people. It’s so totally different from my home here in Bochum/Germany. So it could be that, once in a while, I try to show you some impressions I have about that huge country. But not only. 😉  Here an image from Moscow from late February.
