The Gallery: Green

>> Wednesday, 27 April 2011

The prompt for Tara's Gallery this week was 'Green'. (Click here to see all the other wonderful entries).

Now, the snow has gone - finally - in Moscow, and the grass is growing, but I have to be honest, there isn't much in the way of green and growing things to show you just yet. Ask me to show you 'Green' next week and I expect it to be a whole different story, but right now? Not so much.

Instead then, here are two photographs I took recently on a trip to a city about 200km north of Moscow called Rostov Veliky (trans; Rostov The Great, as opposed to Rostov the not-so-great which I'm assured exists a little further away). The Kremlin there (for oh yes, Red Square doesn't have the monopoly on that word; it means 'fortress') is old and beautiful, but I'm not going to show you that this time around (been there, done that, for Silent Sunday).

So here are a couple of details - green, obviously - that caught my eye elsewhere in the town...

A tile on the side of a building, just because...

And this is where the old window frames which I photographed in glorious situ last September, go to to die... (or, to be sold on to gullible Muscovites at vastly inflated prices. Whichever happens first.)

Those photos are of stunning objects, I'd love one of those frames; they are gorgeous. Can you imagine one in a dividing garden fence?

I love those window frames. Can you imagine the prices they'd go for in London!

Oh, I want one, those frames are stunning. Couldn't find anything like that in Lanzarote, or Norway for that matter!

Now look here after all these comments about wanting those window frames maybe you should set up business - I want one too for my I have no idea why just because, like the tile!

What gorgeous window frames. It's a shame that they have to go to die!

What beautiful photo's, hoe decorative the frames are out there. Glad the snow has gone also.
