Russian family day

I went in to see the Russian family day, nice to see so many different people, bought a tee shirt.

I think it belonged to Abramavich

Well worth the visit.

Here is a little bit of magic from Kate Medvedeva who gave me her card in Blackpool last week.

In Dublin at present there is an exhibition of photos from the Magnum photographer Steve McCurry.Try to go and take a look.
It is in meeting house square at the side of the Irish Film Center.
He seems to be able to capture the soul of some of his subjects.

The color and lighting are something else to behold.
There is one photo which brought tears to the eyes of everyone who saw it.

But here is a bonus, this is Steve McCurry.

Do you know this guy?

Well on his album "the freewheelin Bob Dylan" he is seen linking a young lady called Suze Rotolo she died aged 67 RIP

Here is something to warm the old heart

Orangutan and the Hound


  1. Great fun reading this post and seeing the photos of the Russian Family Day. My two boys are adopted from Russia. I wish we had something like this where we live.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Glad to hear that you are giving your boys a good life. I was talking to a friend of mine who just returned from Belaruse where they were doing work in an orphansge.
    When he asked why there are so many orphans there? he was told "Alcahol"Plus the fact that there is no work
