Riga, baby!

Yesterday I have returned from my 2-days trip to Riga!
It was a rather pleasant experience. I've lived with a lovely family of four: mother, Indra, father, Maris, son, Davis, and a lovely dog Susse. :)
Therefore it was rainy, windy, and quite cold during these 2 days, I enjoyed the city. It is old, authentic, and alive.
This is the symbolic monument of Riga. :)
 Those are lovely lanterns I've seen in the Old Riga. Aren't they cute? :)
 War Museum.. Why suit-cases? :)
 Now I have even more desire to travel and to see the world. The question is in time and money, though...

On the edge between exams and Fall break

Hello, I am Sasha. Student of English language and Literature department who actually wishes for more creative occupation. 

My grandfather, me parents - they are photographers. How could I ignore the call of blood and not to take the camera in my hands? There was no such a way. So I tried..and I continued trying.
I am not even half as good as my parents, or some of my favorite photographers (from DeviantArt and Flickr), but I try hard. May be some day someone will be really interested in giving me an advice, so I develope... We'll see.

For now I am so busy with my exams (thanks God, tomorrow is the last one!), that I barely have time to take photos. I envy people who manage to do studies and continue with their 365 projects. You are strong, talented, and brave! :)
Tomorrow I am taking pictures of the one of my teachers (for the student newspaper). She is such a sweetheart! Nothing really artistic will be involved in it, but I am so ready to photograph all her smiles and cute faces! :)
For now all I have is some photos from beginning of October photoshoot. Those are pictures of of my friend, Nastia taken by me. :)
This one was created under the concept of the"Fall of Men" :)
