One hundred years ago winters in Russia were much more severe. They were so severe that in St. Petersburg they have opened a tram that went on ice of Neva river from one bank to another for 0.03 ruble price, it's like 3 cents because ruble exchange rate to dollar was almost equal at that times. The tram-on-ice system got very popular due to low cost compared to other
means of on-ground transportation and short time needed to cross the river and was in use for a few years consequently. It was so popular that visitors from other Russian towns told stories about it in their local places and some time later the same on-ice tram was launched in Nizhniy Novgorod, you can see it on the down-most photo below.
These are photos of one Russian online community members of which enjoy making some staged photos with creepy plot. Here we have some of their recent topics, like: "A Cheating Wife: You need to make a photo of a man, "a lover", hanging outside the real window. The window should be not lower than a 3rd store of a multi-stored building. "A husband" should lean out from another window with a gun, aiming at "the lover". From yet another window "the cheating wife" should look out in despair." "The Waiter: A man dressed like a water should crawl out of a refuse chute in some multi-stored building, right from the disposal opening. He should hold a tray with some servings and a towel in another hand" "A Zombie: A man, rolled up in bandages should crawl on his stomach at a pedestrian
crossing. He should have a knife sticking out of his back. Another guy should chase him with a working chainsaw" "The Pickles: Make a photo of many jars of pickles. Some of them should have pickled cell-phones. Not less than five cell phones in each jar please" "A Pyramid: You should have a three level pyramid on the photo. The first level is some random truck, the second is a passenger car and some two-wheeled thing on the top of "the pyramid" please." Now see what they got shot after they got those tasks. The members of this community live in different Russian cities, they make the photos in their own neighborhoods, right in the middle of the day while sudden passers-by watching them doing this stuff.
