I have got very diverse relationships with places, each city or village either loves me or not, so do I. The idea of creating a photoblog named “My City”, with series of photographs of different cities occurred long ago. But finally it is coming to life.  Ladies and Gentlemen, I am happy to present the rubric “My City” and the first city is MY BISHKEK.

Brief introduction: Bishkek is the capital of Kyrgyzstan, post-soviet republic, located in Central Asia. Bishkek turned this year. It has rich history and full of life. You can find old buildings from the times before the revolution. You can find revolutionary and Soviet signs and signs of modernity.

I like early autumn, when the bright green grass, sprinkled with unexpected bright yellow leaves…

I like puddles of chestnuts…

I love the autumn color saturation

I love the countryside, and the return of autumn there

I like the narrow and overgrown walkways to the homes filled with shades of green and yellow

I like the rustle of leaves underfoot
