While in Russia for my bodyscapes gallery show at the Manage Gallery in St. Petersburg Russia I enjoyed a brief tour of the city from a friend of a friend. I owe her a great debt of gratitude as without her the cyrillic alphabet used in Russia would have left me illiterate.

On the way to a small pet food store we passed this man. Something about the scene struck me as emblematic of Russia.
