Russia 100 Years War on Terror?

It's a photo from amazing Russian photographer Prokudin-Gorsky, the official photographer of Russian empire. He had a special technology of making three different shots and then combining them in one colour images, most of his works are now stored at Library of Congress and available from their site. This particular shot was made in 1907, that's almost 100 years ago. And what can we see here? A group of islamic terrorists sit in
cage-prison guarded by Russian soldier - the guy in red pants with a rifle (this kind of prisons were made by digging a big hole in the ground and putting very low-ceilings building on it). So the war with Islamic suspects in Russia is 100 years long already? And at that time there were no human rights commisions and "secret prisons" were pretty un-secret. You see there Osama's grandpa probably?

Moscow Toilets

If you go travel Russia, visiting Moscow city, would suddenly get an urge for taking some action in a restroom. Then there are two things you need to remember: 1. All the public restrooms in Moscow charge fee for use. You need to
pay something before you can enter, by cash, they don't accept major credit cards. 2. After you would enter you can encounter something like this: This one is a male restroom in Moscow city downtown.

Internet in Countryside

That's a typical internet cafe in Russia village. Here you can see a pc connected to internet, but to the left of the table there is tiled stove without tiles, fueled with firewood. Internet cafe workers boil water on it in those pans and buckets,
together with some food for themselves. Also somewhere near firewood furnace there is a Kodak service to print photos. It's like high technologies slowly penetrate the Russian traditional countryside way of life.

Dragon Mask

Some time ago we had a Russian guy who made a dragon bag. He probably decided that he is missing
something and so he created a dragon mask that would fit in with the style of his dragon bag.

Moscow Subway Traffic Jam

That’s a typical day in Moscow city subway. Ok, maybe not typical for all Moscow subway but there are some narrow places so when the peak traffic happens people have to
move like that. If you haven’t see here are some more shots from Moscow subway. It’s pity the video is without a sound, it was made by cam phone.

Leonid Baranov Paintings of Russian Countryside

Leonid Baranov is an artist from Ekaterinburg city who draws the modern life in Russian village. Heroes of his works look like real people from Russian countryside. He never became famous
or rich, and he prefers to drink a lot of vodka as a real Russian and doesn’t care much about the missing fame. Still in his pictures I find something attractive.
