An adventure in Tutaev city

Traditional Russian nalichnik
Shooting window frames in the Tutayev, near the Resurrection Cathedral, with my back to it.

The day is quiet, the Sun stands in its zenith, and I screw my eyes up as I look at the window frames of the first floor. All of a sudden, bells start ringing. And then, a voice comes from “the heavens”; it is quiet, clear and retains the unstressed “o”, as it is common for the North Russia dialects:

«More sharp! More sharp! Do not sustain it that long!»

I turn… but see no one, only bells ringing again.

And then, in the interval, the same voice gets louder: “Hey, don’t you sleep, don’t you sleep! Here you should enter… Well, ok, ok now! ” And ringing flows on…
