Photoalbum of Stanislav

To see a photograph in its actual (larger) size, click it, and it will be opened in a lightbox or separate window.

Here you can find some photographs of me in different periods of life. It is not easy to distinguish between photos with me alone and those with my family and friends. However, here I am presented, though in my life I am rather a photograher than a photo object.

Year of 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002 | 2001 | 2000 | 1999 | 1998 | 1988 | 1987

2018.09.07 Near the Old City of Jerusalem, in a park in front of the Mishkenot Sha'ananim Jewish neighborhood there is a globe like this
2018.09.07 In front of the most frequently visited gate of my exit from the Old City of Jerusalem – the Jaffa Gate
2018.09.07 In narrow stone streets of the Old City of Jerusalem with a mess of wires it is cozy anyway, and even ramps are almost everywhere
2018.09.07 I put a kippah (given to me free of charge on the approach to the Western Wall) on my head, took up the Torah – am I not a Jew? :-)
2018.09.07 The Western Wall of the Jerusalem Temple is the place where you unintentionally recall sad things… :'-(
2018.09.07 The first impression of the Old City of Jerusalem is that it looks like a dirty Bazaar; in this open-air museum they sell and live the way it was thousands of years ago
2018.09.07 In front of the most frequently visited gate of my entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem – the Damascus Gate
2018.09.07 The lion in front of a Jerusalem police department in the Moscow Square is peeled off completely :-(
2018.09.07 A Russian even in Jerusalem will find the Moscow Square :-)
2018.09.07 I saddled a strange donkey sculpture made of the pipes, though could sit on an equally strange chair with an appendage – and all this in front of the “Kikar Hamusica” art gallery in the street of Yoel Moshe Salomon in Jerusalem
2018.09.07 Over the street of Yoel Moshe Salomon in Jerusalem there are colored umbrellas hanging, just like in the Portuguese city of Agueda in 2011 (where the tradition is from)
2018.09.07 I am twisting the handle of a giant gramophone in Ben Yehuda Street of Jerusalem, because this is the only way to make it sound (really)
2018.09.07 Ben Yehuda Street is one of the central streets of Jerusalem, mostly pedestrian, and Eliezer Ben-Yehuda is a Hebrew lexicographer and newspaper editor, the founder of the revival of the Hebrew language
2018.09.07 An “incubator theater” in Jerusalem is obviously the place where one can incubate a yellow duckling :-)
2018.09.07 For Jerusalem streets it is typical to use the same stone in construction/decoration of houses and a completely infernal mess of wires
2018.09.07 The main headdress of male Jews (who are not hasids) – kippah, also know as yarmulke – is sold in Jerusalem in a variety of colors and materials
2018.09.07 To visit Jerusalem and not to take a picture with a real hasid would be a mistake (though it is not easy, because it seems that tourists for them are like annoying flies)
2018.09.07 The jerusalemite I thought was a police officer turned out to be a representative of the Israel's national emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank service “Magen David Adom”
2018.09.07 If I correctly understood the explanation of a jerusalemite, these cyclopean constructions are for flowers (in their season)
2018.09.07 Horizontal view of the Dead Sea from the Kalia Beach's observation deck
2018.09.07 Vertical view of the Dead Sea from the Kalia Beach's observation deck
2018.09.07 Infographics of world heights with me at -420 m relative to the sea level (not of the Dead Sea but of a conditional one)
2018.09.07 That “the lowest bar in the world” could actually be even lower – now it is not at the lowest point of the Dead Sea's coast
2018.09.07 The cover title of the magazine: “Chill Out in Jerusalem” – though in fact here I am at the Dead Sea
2018.09.07 The Russian ruble claims to be a convertible currency, so it can come to Israel, right into the Dead Sea :-)
2018.09.07 When you lie on the water of the Dead Sea, you experience an unusual feeling of “violation” of physics laws (which work as usual in this super salty sea)
2018.09.07 A “classic” photograph with reading on the water, which every visitor of the Dead Sea should take; the camera angle #3
2018.09.07 A “classic” photograph with reading on the water, which every visitor of the Dead Sea should take; the camera angle #2
2018.09.07 A “classic” photograph with reading on the water, which every visitor of the Dead Sea should take; the camera angle #1
2018.09.07 Who can guess why I brought a magazine to swim in the Dead Sea? ;-)
2018.09.07 What we thought was a “Jewish” dressing room (without doors!) on the shore of the Dead Sea turned out to be a future shower :-)
2018.09.07 On the territory of one of the paid beaches of the Dead Sea (it is behind me) – the Kalia Beach
2018.09.07 Next to the Dead Sea (it is behind me) there is “the lowest bar in the world”
2018.09.07 One of supposedly former camel sheds by the Dead Sea is bizarrely painted with a “small talk” on mortality :-)
2018.09.07 Supposedly a former military checkpoint by the Dead Sea (that is between Israel, Palestine and Jordan)
2018.09.07 The sign that greets those who arrive to the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth, and the sea is behind me
2018.09.07 I have just got off the bus that took me to the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth
2018.09.07 At the headquarters of the National Jewish Council for Disabilities, Yachad Israel, in Jerusalem
2018.09.07 Early in the morning in a street of Jerusalem against the background of a horse on a pole
2018.09.06 I have just come to Jerusalem from the Ben Gurion Airport
2018.09.06 The best snack at a Turkish airport is the Turkish coffee and simit bagel

2018.06.11 For me the war in the Persian Gulf was only with waves :-), and only a few times.
2018.06.10 The Persian Gulf, previously known to me as the place of the “Desert Storm” military operation, actually has shown itself as peaceful and hospitable.
2018.06.07 I tried to fit the photo frame called Dubai Frame but it seems I did this not the best way. :-)
2018.06.07 In hot Dubai cats let you pet them not because they are tame but because of the heat they have no strength to escape. :-)

2018.06.06 It turned out that sea urchins can be kept on hand not being afraid to get hurt!
2018.06.05 As if I am drinking camel milk in the Dubai Mall (because actually I have already drunk it – almost like cow's one).
2018.06.05 I was inside and the top of Burj Khalifa, and here I am outside and at the foot of this beauty and the masterpiece of modern architecture!
2018.06.05 The Burj Khalifa international construction team and I who have just come down from it.
2018.06.05 And the last panoramic view from Burj Khalifa with me leaning not on the glass (it is scary), but on the beam between.
2018.06.05 How many monotonous photos from Burj Khalifa are there? But here you can see 2 EMAAR skyscrapers under construction, united by… a ship!..
2018.06.05 This is me only on the 124th floor of 163, at the height of 452 meters of 828!
2018.06.05 Was there a view from Burj Khalifa with me sitting yet? no? There it is! :-)
2018.06.05 A view from Burj Khalifa that shows complex road junctions and gives understanding that it is the skyscraper of skyscrapers.
2018.06.05 Another view from Burj Khalifa to the desert with skyscrapers, in which it stands.
2018.06.05 I understand the English warning on the glass a little bit so I stopped to extend my arms outside Burj Khalifa. :-)
2018.06.05 On the Burj Khalifa's glass there is a warning in Arabic that you should not extend arms outside but can Russians read the Arabic script? :-)
2018.06.05 On one of the skyscrapers smaller than Burj Khalifa there is the name of its owner and the owner of many other skyscrapers, the biggest developer in the Emirates – the EMAAR company.
2018.06.05 One of the views from Burj Khalifa is giving the understanding of that other skyscrapers are just small fries being compared to it!

2018.06.04 With the Sharjah Library in the background.

2018.06.02 Lord of the magical Black Stones of Hinghema at Al Khan beach in Sharjah.
2018.06.01 The Dubai Marina elite district. If I had an apartment there, I would have this bay instead of a garage, and a yacht instead of a car. :-)
2018.06.01 This is how elite villas look like on the “branches” of the Palm Jumeirah artificial island and that person who has no such a villa there. :-(
2018.06.01 This Hyundai Sonata helped us to learn places of interest and travel through the United Arab Emirates (“UAE” on its state number).

2018.06.01 Mere mortals (without an excursion) are not allowed to enter the territory of the 7-stars sail-shaped hotel, so they have to be photographed at the approaches.
2018.06.01 That famous 3-stars sail-shaped hotel, with which everyone takes photos being in Dubai, in the haze of the summer day heat does not look as bright as on postcards.
2018.06.01 At 2 p. m. the sun in the Emirates is so bright so it is hard to open eyes for a photograph in the Dubai fountains waiting for an evening.
2018.06.01 It is not easy to fit the world's tallest building – Burj Khalifa – into the frame, even if the frame is vertical!
2018.06.01 In the giant glass wall of the Dubai Mall aquarium there are storeys of the trade center reflecting, and inside it there are fishes swimming.
2018.06.01 There, behind the glass wall of the Dubai Mall aquarium, there are such sea monster swimming, so I am shocked! :-O

2018.04.29 My stretching is not as good as needed but at the “To Stars” sculpture by the “Home of Cosmonauts” in Zvezdny Gorodok (the Star Town) so you want to be a part of the human's desire for space!
