Random Caucasus pictures

Just a few scans of Velvia and whatnot, done poorly in my opinion. (More on that later when I get the slides re-scanned in Chicago.)

First off are four from Azerbaijan - the Shirvanshah Palace an hour before sunset, followed by two shots of a sprawling oil field east of Baku on the way to Surkhany. Then is a shot of a not at all unusual fruit stall in Baku, just north of the police station on Rasul Raza Street.

Below, an old woman muses on life on her doorstep in Tbilisi. This was in 2006, and by 2010 when I last checked, the graffiti were worn away and the building appeared to be abandoned...

Finally, two night scenes taken with a Nikon D90: Rustavelli Avenue looking east towards Freedom Square, and a man in a pensive mood waiting at a currency exchange late one evening in 2010...
