Crimea Simeiz

5

Every year remains less places of the wild nature on Southern Coast of Crimea... But in Simeiz such place exists, it is area of a rock "the Swan Wing" and "Diva" cliff...

The famous sea resort, Simeiz is situated 17 km to the west from Yalta, between the Black Sea and the southern side of Crimean mountains, being the part of the so-called “Big Yalta” – chain of resorts, spreader along the coast. Located near the bottom of romantic legendary Cat-mountain, Simeiz has several nice beaches with clean water. The town was the favorite place of rest for many Russian noble families since the first half of the XIX-th century, when a fashionable resort had been established here by Count I.A.Maltsov. Picturesque villas and cottages like villas “Mechta” (“Dream”) or “Ksenia” are really beautiful and still remind of those times.

Next to the “Diva” Cliff (by its shape it resembles a woman with flowing hair, who is coming out of the sea), you will find a cozy beach with clean, sparkling water and picturesque rocks. The basic advantage of this coast is transparent water that is a determining condition for a underwater photo)) So don’t forget to take your Krab and Fisheye Submarine with you!! To tell the truth, the fauna of coastal waters is not so rich and various, but as for me it’s not really important, cause you can take some good shots of yourself or else your friends))

Next to Simeiz, there is the Blue Gulf with a wonderful aqua park, where the whole day would pass in entertainment.
But for me Simeiz is even more beautiful in winter or early spring… no tourists… empty-cozy-tiny streets…))
And make sure you go up on top of the “Diva” cliff! It’s a fantastic feeling! Fantastic view! Fantastic wind in your hair!
B&W shots by dmigor color and supersampler ones by me)) Sorry, i didn’t put a “dot” on the map, cause it doesn’t work(( don’t know why…

    A Photo Board of 1960s Fashion

    If theater has the stage then fashion has photography. It is through pictures that trends and new looks are wheeled from coast to coast. Even 50-year-old prints can sway next generations of fashion plates. Take Jacqueline Kennedy's shipshape style and the mod crowd of New York and London, all veritable influencers until today.

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    One of the things that make a trip to a far-flung place truly memorable is getting the chance to interact with the locals and share fun moments with them. Five years ago, disdis was able to do exactly that on a trip to Zinguinchor, Senegal, and it goes without saying that it was most certainly one for the books.
