The Russian by hesitation The Russian by hesitation
Short description
:bulletgreen: the Russian version of the FRENCHY found here: :pointr: [link]
:bulletblue: The original model SUCKED but my friends daughter was with us so I am posting the shot I made of her. See the shot of my original idea here: :pointr:[link]
:bulletred: We almost got arrested and I almost had my camera taken away while shooting this
:bulletpurple: No kids were hurt or given alcohol during the shoot.

Long and detailed description
:bulletgreen: After I shot FRENCHY :pointr:[link] I really wanted to shoot this whole series that never happened of course, but I ended up organizing this one. (i dont usually organize my shots, so it felt kinda weird getting all the props and stuff. This was shot on the Red Square :pointr:[link] which is supposedly what Russia is known for. Let me know if you would have thought of a better symbol.

:bulletblue: It was so easy to work with =n3o I took it for granted that I had to choose between many good shots. After this shoot with my original model though (see it here: :pointr: [link]) I realized that even though he looked perfect it didnt guarantee the success of the photo. Sooo disappointing. Luckily my friend's 6 year old daughter was with us, so I got her to pose. She is ADORABLE. went to first grade this year :) So i ended up liking this one better and here it is.

:bulletred: A scary looking agent in civillian clothes came up to us and made us show our passports and told us this looks too much like shooting and ad (i was using a flash) and scared us in all the different ways. Made us tear off the label and scratch the name off the cap... then it turned out if we made one step back it wouldnt be his area and he wouldn't care. WTF?

:bulletpurple: Yea its water in the bottle, dont worry.

enjoy! :dance:

— Дорогая, я дома!
— Почему так поздно?
— По дороге медведь ногу вывихнул — пришлось водкой отпаивать.
— Садитесь все! Давайте выпьем водки.
— Мам, я пойду поиграю с медведем.
— Хорошо, только сначала выпей водки.
— А где наш дедушка?
— Он вторую неделю стоит в очереди за талонами на талоны.
— Хорошо, что он перед этим выпил водки. И ты без дела не сиди — иди тоже выпей водки.
— Ладно, иди, погуляй, сынок, и не забудь написать вечером отчёт в КГБ! А по пути домой не забудь купить водки — она заканчивается.
— Дорогая, что-то жарко. Выключи, пожалуйста, атомный реактор.
— Сейчас водку допью и выключу, а ты пока сыграй на балалайке.

Vodka has appeared in Russia at XIV
century, before it there was Honey home-made beer.
Russia is not the country of alcoholics.
Please, stop to extend this myth. It`s not fun.

это всё забавно конечно, но такие шутки только МЫ понимаем, у европейцев же закрепляется лже-образ пьянчуги-русского.
у нас в стране дети с 12ти лет пить начинают, вся старшая школа упивается коктейлями почти ежедневно, потому что думают это норма, ведь пропаганда везде перед глазами, и в фильмах вечнопьющие \"герои\", и в рекламе ит.п. смертность от алкоголизма растет.
не поленитесь, почитайте [link]

алкогольный юмор - очень болезненный для России сейчас;
вы бы мальчишке в руки лучше самовар вручили, или "на руки" медведю посадили бы, если так хочется символизма;))))

не буду спорить, проблемма на самом деле серьёзная.

А я всего лишь фотографию сняла - сомневаюсь, что она имела бы какой-то эффект и одном случае или другом.
бутылку водки было сильно легче найти и купить чем самовар или медведя ;)

Это девочка кстати. Тусей звать.

во время новогодней ярмарки около Кремля всегда в продаже всякая хрень типа матрешек, валенок, ушанок и самоваров... но медведей, к сожалению, нет;))

аа, девочка! прошу прощения;))

A child is incomparable! :thumbsup:
Photo looks really nice after original one! :lol: Though that one is kinda cute also. ^^;
No, really, I love the colors and it has Kremlin and Saint Basil's Cathedral in it (i.e. I like the composition =)).

Though I would take a shot from some high point with a large view, something like this one, but with Kremlin and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, and child will spread his hands to hug our country. =)
Maybe I'll do it one day... :aww:


ps. It's an official place after all, so not everything is allowed I guess.
Hope you still enjoyed being in Moscow. =)

pps. lol, spelling corrector suggested me to change Cremlin to Gremlin =D
