Some Images that I like recently.

When Peter was still here, I was told that it was pretty much forbidden to take pictures inside of the Metro. They are federal property, police and cameras monitor them constantly. But the interiors are so gorgeous considering they are subway stations. The exteriors are gorgeous also, but I always forget to take pictures of those because... 
I really liked the composition of this image. The two elderly women sitting underneath the lady and her scales mosaic. I can't remember this particular station, I believe it was built in 1955, and mosaics covered both sides. 

At the Central Park of Leisure there were two sculptures pretty close to the entrance. The right is Gustav Klimts' "The Kiss"  Which has also been rendered on nesting doll, and lacquered box, and possibly scarf. 

This is "The Dance" by Matisse, also you can see the painting in The State Hermitage. 

Here's a McDonald's that has a walk up window, because drive thru's are for squares. Yes somebodies using the window. 

Interior of McDonalds. This time I got some counter shots. 

McDonalds' workers are required (as part of their unitard)  to wear polo (or whatever) and jeans. Also from what I could infer they are not to pleased to have some tourist taking pictures. (It wasn't busy to my credit, and it's not like I was trying to take his picture.)  Sometimes the lady employees had on jean skirts, sometimes just jean pants. These were uniform, as they all looked the same and had a wider cut then the skin tight jeans as is preferred over here. This McDonalds was super fancy on the inside, attached to a mall and aquarium. Also they occasionally have a McCafe but as a separate cash register/stand whatever. I noticed Teremok also did this. What's Teremok you ask? Well it's a blini (crepe) fast food joint. It sells ethnic Russian food, blini's, borscht, and salads(Salads not like in the states but Russian style: Heavy on the mayo and usually combined. For instance we have had them with boiled egg, peas, pickles and lots of mayo.If you like Mayonnaise severed a million different ways, this is the place for you!), also Russian desserts.
