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…

The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years.

    Petzval Lenses: The Craft of Portraiture

    The Petzval 85 and 58 Lenses remain favorites among Lomographers because of the quality bokeh, perfect for making dreamy portraits, à la classic paintings. But portraiture is more than just showing off a pretty face in a classic, vertical orientation: It's a marriage of elements. Think of it in terms of attitude and personality.

    The Art of Picture Taking: An Interview with Filmmaker Catherine Dauphin

    In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
