We know this photographer, Slava, for being meticulously cool with the photos he make. Lately his main topic of interest was Russia from above - he visited different places across the country and photographed those from helicopters or small planes. And now he made something even more cool - probably one of the most nicely looking photo sets in a while. He took some selected best photos of Russia from above he took for last couple of years and transformed them in toy-like fashion. This
technic is known as tilt-shift makes a regular photo looks unreal and like stepping out of children's toy store. The blurred sidelines of the frame contribute to this effect. Like you see the photo of the Red Square and the Kremlin on top - isn't it look pretty much unreal? Inside you can see really awesome collection of photos by Slava which he calls a "Toy-Like Russia". This post is a really beautiful set of photos and highly recommended to view!
So Moldavia was a sunny Soviet republic located in South-Eastern Europe, bordering Romania and known for its fine wines and Soviet pop star Sofia Rotaru. Basically, it was a nice place with pretty much warm climate compared to most of Russia, with long
summers, golden fields of wheat and gardens with fruits. And to commemorate all this here is photo of Brezhnev surrounded by Moldavian women made during the "Golden Age" of Soviet Union during his visit to Moldavia. See more inside:
Here we have a selection of photos from World War 2 or to be precise - from the first days when the German Wermacht has attacked Soviet Union. For example the first photo was made 21st of June at night. Hermann Goering (or Herman Herring), the second most powerful man in Germany
and a founder of Gestapo reads aloud the order declaring the invasion should begin to other German generals. Next day the German minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels had his speech on the radio officially declaring the war with Russia. See more inside:
As being reported the Russian president is going to get new flying fortress pretty soon, which is told to cost over 86 million dollars. Actually they don't build one jet, they construct two similar airplanes so that he could have a spare one all the time. They say the plane would be delivered
for him in the end of this year as it is not fully ready yet, however the interior photos have been surfaced already and its pretty much luxury inside - private bedrooms with king size beds, full size kitchens, hallways and it's even having its own training gym! See photos:
