In a restaurant in Losevo, couple of hours drive north of St Petersburg, these women celebrated international women's day, 8th of March. They where the only one in the restaurant, besides me and my daughter. It did not seem to stop them from making a party dancing, eating and drinking. I was also very welcome to capture the moment.
A common sight at the Peter and Paul fortress in early spring. As soon as the sun beams gives warmth, people starts sunbathing. Usually there are a lot of snow and the Neva river is covered with ice, but this winter (2014) it was less snow and ice. The women I talked with comes every sunny day, and stays as long as they can. I got their permission to photograph them.
