Shadows in a Russian museum

© Richard Schear photos

Seldom frequented by tour guides and their foreign hordes, the Polytechnic Museum in Moscow was chosen by my husband as one destination during his solo trip around the city via its most excellent Metro system. Knowing Dick's sense of direction to be fuzzy at best, I decided to stay behind on the Viking Surkov. Dick did find the places he was seeking, however, and was only lost for a total of two hours. After my day of rest and only a little bit of wifely worry, I was able to enjoy the photos he took. At home, with the photos on my computer, I searched them for shadows, finding several interesting and fun ones.

It looks like an interesting assortment of things to look at. I esp. like the unique candleabra. I hope you are home resting now and I'm dying to hear how you fared on your long test run for Africa :-)

getting lost in Moscow is a bit of a scary thought Kay but Dick came up trumps with his choice of venue and his photographs didn't he? You visit some weird and wonderful places Kay but when are coming to wonderful Knott End?

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Phil — Well, I've been to Morecambe, so Knott End might be next. My best friend is moving to England, so I wouldn't be surprised. Meanwhile, we have some mystery birds we photographed in Russia, would love to have your expert opinion.

@ Joyful — I was just fine flying to St. Petersburg, Penny, so I thought "aha, I can do this!" but coming home we were awake 31 hours and I still haven't recovered. Caught an airport/plane or bus germ somewhere.

That elegant old lamp is especially attractive. I can imagine (can't I?) that it was owned by royalty.


Shadows of onyx, shadows of grey,
Shadows to chase my doldrums away;
Shadows each morning, shadows at night,
Shadows, O shadows, you’re my delight!

Sometimes it is certainly in one's best interests to get a little rest break while one's husband does his thing. Checking out the photos after is a good way to catch up and find what you need for your own purposes! Good job!
