Shadow Shot Sunday: Uglich, Russia



Afternoon shadows, above and below, seen in Russia's historic small city of Uglich. Shadows of people, shadows of trees, shadows of wheels of many sizes. Photos © by Richard Schear and Kay Davies during our August holiday with Viking River Cruises.

The motor bikes didn't surprise me, but the quads did. Are they able to drive them on city streets? We can get a ticket for just crossing the street getting from forest road to forest road. - Margy

The day is beautiful, sunny and warm (which no doubt contrasts sharply with their winters). The northerly sun leaves shadows from every thing and being in town.

The architecture is so different to my eyes as well! Ah, the excitement of travel is always amazing, travel as much as possible - there is much yet to see...

One may not be able to read the language, but the Pepsi logo is always recognizable!

I enjoy your blog and visits, and I have awarded you The Versatile Blogger Award.

I see from one of your photos that Pepsi has penetrated Russia--but why am I not surprised?

SHADOW PLAY

Shadows like horses, shadow likes chicks,
Shadows like houses built with red bricks;

Shadows much taller than a high wall—
No matter their shape, I love them all!

@ Friko — They're not exactly carts, Friko, they're small off-road all-terrain-vehicles known as "quads" because they have four wheels. I assume they're for rent at the place with the Pepsi sign.

@ Margy — I am guessing they're allowed to drive these little things on roads but I don't know for sure. I didn't see any on the roads, I know that. There are a couple of parks nearby, so maybe they're being rented out to people who want to zip around the park trails.

It's amazing how many places that there are to see in this world. I suppose that one could spend a lifetime trying to see it all and not be able to do so. I live vicariously through your travels!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Your travels are always fascinating! Love the ambience of the 2nd photo and the building style in the last photo is intriguing!

Dianne said...

I keep marveling at the architecture with each of your posts

my grandparent came from Russia and I want so much to visit there, my grandmother always said I reminded her of home :)

It's funny to see your pics from Russia because I live next to Russia but never been there!
I'm planning to make a cruise (no visa needed) in near future...
