A walk in the Vienna Zoo April 25, 2009

The Vienna Zoo is said to be the oldest one in the world (opened in 1752) and, probably the most beautiful.

We thought you might enjoy the snaps from our walk in the zoo today – animals are beautiful, innocent and so joy-giving!

Human faces April 20, 2009

People’s faces… it is one of the most fascinating things in the world – one nose, two yes, one mouth and such unlimited variations of them!…

When I am in a crowd I love to watch people’s faces and enjoy the beauty of diversity. Turly amazing, how much they differ and how endlessly human they are…

Here are some faces I have photographed over last year:






I wonder if you feel the same about it?

Airport ranking – my top 5 most interesting July 24, 2008

I have been travelling by plane since I was a baby. I love airports. I even wanted to become a stewardess :). I have not been around the whole world, but there is a number of airports I have been departing from and arriving at: Vilnus, Moscow (2 airports), Vienna, Paris, Mumbai, London, Istanbul, Milan, Frankfurt, Nizza, Berlin, Zürich, New Delhi, Tashkent, Rostov-on-Don, Khakriv, Doha to name a few I could remember.

Each airport is a kind of a visitcard of a country/city. It is interesting to see how much of the national character  is involved into the design and service of that very special place – airport.

Here is my personal ranking of 5 best airports I have visited so far:

Number 5: Milan airport (Italy), makes rather an out-dated impression (probably build in the 1970s), but has its charm due to the green colour and massive ads of Italian designers: (more…)
