  1. J'avais remarqué, en Russie, ces femmes parfois très agées qui surveillaient les salles, dans les musées. Un façon d'augmenter une petite retraite, sans doute.

  2. Ha, such a fun people shot!
    But for Americans (of a certain age, at least) baBOOSHka will always mean a headscarf tied under the chin.

  3. Dina I was just going to ask if the Babushka was indeed a headscarf, my Baba used to wear her Babushka whenever she'd go out. This word alone brings back some fond memories of my dear grandparents.

    Irina this is a fun and interesting shot, which exhibit did the lady just come from seeing?

    Have a wonderful weekend!
