fear of photos

Tomsk: Siberian houses
short skirts in the snow

There seems to be a level of fear that is lingering from the old Communist days; it seems that everywhere I go, many people, usually the older folks, have a fear of having their photo taken.  I saw an Army truck and took the above photo.  As soon as the soldier saw my camera, he pulled his head back and would not expose himself again.  Many of the vegetable sellers, women in the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, & 70′s absolutely refuse to have their photos taken and look very worried after I snap a pic and they were not aware beforehand.  It is almost as if they expect the KGB to jump out and arrest them if their photo appears on a western blog…

  1. Hey Buddy. The pictures have been great. They help the Eye Understand. The only thing missing are the Sounds and the Smells. Does Your Device Capture Sound..?
