From Russia with Love

“Bond, James Bond”, is probably the first thing that pops to mind when we hear that title.
How many, over the decades, have fallen in love with the suave and debonair, british intelligence, action hero able to escape from any stronghold except that of a woman?

Women drooled ( sigh ) and men daydreamed of being “that guy“.
Come on, guys, face it you know you did….all the nifty secret agent gadgets and beautiful women, good or bad, who couldn’t wait to lure  you into bed
….. Yeah, you did.
Well, today despite the reference of the movie title and the characters, we are just going to take a look at the beauty of Russia and fall in love with its mysteriousness and see a different side to the land we know mostly through harsh political portrayals.
A friend of mine is a well-known photographer and some of his work is displayed below. Simon visits many countries and finds the unique, natural and man-made qualities which are aesthetically mystifying and lovely.
Just thought to share his addition to the archive.
So, enjoy the gallery and afterwards if you feel moved to watch a Bond film,…..can’t blame you.
162 photographs from Simon Marsden’s recent travels
in Russia.
Find them in the Russia category of the picture library:

    You are welcome. Most of his work is in black and white, however, he does take color photos. I believe if you make it to the 16th page of the Russia archive, you will begin to see them. Have fun looking around. Usually he deals with the dark and mysterious.
    Have a beautiful day!
