Summit Day “When the mountain called us” :
The alarm woke Nitya and Nitya woke me up at 3:15 in the morning. The temperature inside the tent is -4.5. It was good that we slept wearing three layers below and four layers above, otherwise the cold night would not have deterred us from turning us into Egyptian mummies. Sleep was good and warm. The second most difficult task was getting out of the sleeping bag and the first was putting on the snow shoes. It took half an hour to get ready and become a mountaineer, it did not take even a moment for the ovaries to shrink in the outside temperature.

A photo session with the adorable girl named Lucy.
It all started with a leisurely sit-down at a cafe with some photographer friends when I noticed a beautiful girl. Our eyes met a few times, prompting me to inquire with an acquaintance who happened to work at the cafe:
Me: Hi, do you know the girl sitting over there?
Waitress: Yes, she comes here quite often. What's up?
Me: She seems like a good subject for photos. Do you think she'd be interested?
Waitress: Hmm, shall I ask her?
Me: Sure, please ask her if she'd be willing to have a photo session.

DINORWIC FPV Chimera 7 desync
Absolutely love this place, what a place to fly!! All was going well, weather was sort of on our side(not raining), for some strange reason I couldnt get enough sats even after 15 minutes so took to the skies anyway and took it steady. Next minute the goggles just blacked out, I punched up then vision came back on barrel rolling out of sky right into the power station. Luckily the security guard was a nice guy and escorted us round to fetch my drone back. Just bent props and easy enough to find, ejected the battery but external buzzer worked a treat, jus cant figure out why it blacked out? Drones huh...

Naš autoportret. ❤️❤️Our self-portrait. ❤️❤️
I'll let you in on a secret. It's not easy to draw at all, especially a portrait. You need a special gift for that. Honestly, it is more important to capture the spirit of a person and to look like it than to be technically perfect without "that something". As a child, I remember an impersonator who, if she hadn't disguised herself as the person she was imitating, you wouldn't even know who she was imitating. That's it for you. And there are imitators who "take off" a face without even a hint of makeup! It's a REAL copycat. When you conjure it up from the inside. Now, I'm not saying that I drew my daughter and myself perfectly, but since watercolor is the most difficult technique (all painters know that), I'm quite satisfied.
Hello friends, during our trip, we also went to Bam city to see the Bam Citadel closely
The Bam citadel is the largest historical adobe structure in the world, which is located in the city of Bam in the province of Kerman in the southeast of Iran.
From the 7th to the 11th century, the old citadel of Bam became important as a crossroads along the Silk Road and other important trade routes and as a producer of silk and cotton clothes. The whole building was a big fortress that housed the citadel
