Personally, I am happy if I can take pictures at least 100 days a year – and it has become possible only after I requested print and processing of files to other people and stopped to sit in the lab and the computer.

Are you going to shoot when you want and what you want on a rainy day, allowing himself to lie in bed. Throwing away or simply never show any photo that does not become perfect, created in ideal conditions. In most cases of occupational picture involves the implementation of what others want from you and in time, which is set by them and it seems acceptable to them.

We must give take this into account and rely on the appropriate attitude to Russia from countries that claim to own the title of "Great Power". What is unique and attractive to today Russia to other countries? Perhaps in Russia is the area or areas developed so that these countries fit to take with Russia an example? Perhaps, on hearing of the international community such phrases as: "The Russian scientists have found …", "Russian scientists have proved …" "Russia has invented / developed the first / has no analogues in the world / the newest / best / unique …" "The Russian automotive industry is good and in demand …"? Perhaps it is best medicine, or advanced economy, or quality of life? Maybe Russia is attractive investment? Maybe there is something that simply no one knows? After an ulterior motive is so far almost native to the Russian people are terms such as nanotechnology, progress, development, innovation, breakthrough, etc. Russia at least once a month, promising signs lucrative, historically important and profitable for the Russian state agreements, documents, declarations …
