Travel Theme: On Display – St. Petersburg, Russia

What a wonderful theme this week – I only wish I had known about it earlier, like eight years ago when I spent two weeks in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have recently been going through my photographs thinking about themes I could use to share what I saw at that time. This theme gives me the opportunity to focus on how things were displayed for sale. For our friends who live there, these images are everyday sites, but to us they are somewhat different but also in many ways the same as how we sell and buy our daily goods.

You have already met Anna (in the striped sweater), who is buying potatoes for our supper when staying in a dacha with her family.
