Rye

Rye, in East Sussex, is one of England’s most beautiful medieval towns, each street of it has a unique style. If you wander along the Mermaid, Watchbell streets and Church Square you will come across houses declaring they were rebuilt and refurbished in 1450.

Rye Harbour is an amazing place for nature lovers and has a rare coastal landscape. This red roofed hut, also known as Gran’s Hut, is one of the most photographed things. It looks simple but eye-catching. The date it was first built is unknown, but was in use from the early 1900’s to store fishing and shrimping equipment.

Battle Abbey is a partially ruined abbey which was built on the site of the Battle of Hastings by William the Conqueror and Normans as a penance of killing so many people during their conquest of England. The Abbey is dedicated to St.Martin. Its church was finished in about 1094.

How does it feel
To be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see what’s real
Tell me grey seal” (c) Elton John, Bernie Taupin

Ostankino Teletower

International historical reconstruction festival called “Times and Epochs” takes place in Moscow every summer. Hunderd of reenactors from different countries recreated various epochs from Antiquity to the 20th century on the streets and boulevards of Moscow. I took some pictures of “Russians in Paris in 1814” which was dedicated to the foreign campaign of 1813-1814, during which the Russian army occupied Paris. Confrontation gave place to a peaceful life many parts of which were represented at this site including different professions of that time, food, costumes, uniaxial cart, ship and horses.

Maya people from Mexico were also visiting Moscow as a part of that historicl festival.
