Best Russia Pictures - 99th Birthday

Russia has a lot going on. Its lands are wider than the diameter of Pluto. It has mega rich, it has ultra poor. It has clement environments, it has harsh environments. Russia borders Europe, it nestles next to China, it has a border with North Korea. The place is varied beyond belief.

It is no surprise that there is a constant stream of wonder from the cameras of the Russian populus, but despite these facts I find myself constantly amazed at the images that hail from within this monumental portion of planet earth.

Today we have pictures that’ll make you chuckle of course, but there are some that are simply a joy to observe in their own right. Let’s get going. FYI, the picture above is a birthday cake made for a 99-year-old Russian fella.

Best Russia Pictures - Lenin at rest

I looked at the photo above, of a supine Lenin, for quite a while. It’s awesome for many reasons. But it wasn’t until my 8th or 9th stare that I realised she has a scythe. A scythe? Then I realised that she would have actually used her scythe for farming. Not so weird after all.

The picture below is currently my favourite photo of all time. At a glance you can be amused by the newspaper doilies but in the same second a little bit touched that they stole their time in the sun regardless of the lack of pomp…
