Once in Perm, I saw these three boarded window frames.
At first sight – just window frames with shutters, boarded from bad people. But have a closer look at the pattern behind the shutters, and you will see… beetles, huge beetles with very long whiskers!
It is strange why some things and event can imprint themselves in one’s mind…
Yes, I traveled to tens of Russian cities and towns where I had seen thousands of wooden houses. But my trip to Kostroma is a very special and warm memory – so good was the company I shared :))
I wish you always have a god company – whatever you do, whenever you do!
In some places, you can try as you might, you’ll never find a single wooden house. But in some, houses are there, but they their windows do not have any frames.
Well, Krasnodar is one of these last ones.
My three days of exploration resulted in only three framed windows, and this one seems to be the most pretentious!
In search of interesting pieces to treat you today, I scanned my Izhevsk photos and found this most original lucarne!
If someone asked me, whom I see most often in the window, my answer would be instant.
Landlords, though almost never mind of taking photos, are not very keen of being shot. This is the reason why cats and not people appear in the windows! Like these ones, from Kostroma
An unusual picture… An unusual and a bit sad. In Ivanovo Oblast, I happened to see the inner side of window frames.
Hopefully, they reached a mutual understanding with plastic windows and no one can see their inner side any more:)
In contrast to sunny window frames from Myshkin I have shown a day before, these ones, from Samara, are quite different.
And can you see a well-preserved wooden dragon at the top of the left one?
In these early days of spring, I feel like giving flowers and showing only bright and sunny frames.
And yes, I do have them: this summer photo was taken in the town of Myshkin, Yaroslavl Oblast
Spring is on the way, and today I treat you with something very special: bright house from the town of Spas-Klepiki, Ryazan Oblast, decorated with… tulips! Enjoy!
Chita is one of the remotest cities where I happened to take photos of decorated windows. Before my trip, I was looking through the photos available on the Internet, and yet doubted if six and half hours of flight would bring me more pieces of tradition russian wooden architecture.
But my doubts turned out to be for nothing: Moscow and Saint-Petersburg are a far cry from Chita!
