Colourful rural Russia

Russia Oct 2011 058

Russia Oct 2011 013

On our visit to Russia, travelling from St Petersburg in the North to Rostov on Don in the South we saw many styles of architecture, Baroque, Art Deco, Constructivism, Communist………however being a lover of shabby paint, I thought that I would show you one little village of painted wooden houses & ordinary self sufficient gardens.

Something different from the normal photos of Russia, I hope that you like them.

I do have many more to follow!


  1. So much nicer than the 'communist construction' homes. It reminds me of places that I've been in Finland, especially the islands.

  2. Love the photographs - particularly like the blue and white house.
