Beautiful Lake Baikal and Listvyanka

I have spent the day today exploring Lake Baikal and Listvyanka, and there are such great places.

The town of Listvyanka is located around the lake, and have a tourist focus.

Lots of activity going around, maybe the most busy part is the market where the barbecue runs high, smoking different meats and fish. Mostly collected locally.

And the boats are going all the time, and the harbour is full of them.  Some are fishing, and some are catering to tourists that wants to get the know the famous lake a little closer.

So of course I had to do the same and get a look of the city and the spectacular surroundings from the lake itself.

As a little after note, I can mention that I am currently in my hotel in Listvyanka writing this since I will not have Internet untill I reach Mongolia in a couple of more days on the train. But the town will not let you go easily, 50 metres from my hotel window there is a wedding party, and oh boy, can these Siberians party. So I guess . I will have more time to write about my trip so far, and edit some more of my images.

Picture of the day: Daily life on the Mekong river

Another from the archive, but previously not shown. This is shot at the mighty Mekong river in Vietnam last year. A very interesting place to be, with a lot of history and culture. The Mekong is the lifeline, and todays image is of  what I  guess are some local fisherman that are out doing what they to, surrounded by stunning scenery.

Picture of the night: Street photography interaction

I was walking down the main street of Oslo today, and this man was handing out flyers on behalf of his store, and I showed him my camera and made my intentions clear, that I wanted a shot. Hi was game, and just lifted up his little flyer and tried to be funny or hiding his face or something. I took his image, and I nodded my head in appreciation of his spontaneity, and being a good sport. Mybe one of closest shots that I have had of a Cartier – Bressons “decisive moments”…..
