Soviet Tanks and Hydroelectric Dams!
Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, Divnigorsk, Irkutsk
End of July 2009
Last day in Yekaterinburg! Tanner felt like Crooked grinding the Scroll before heading out of town!
But before we left Yekaterinburg, we went for a swim in the lake…
It is on to Omsk!
Yekaterinburg was an amazing, Everyone got something good on tape, and everyone loved the atmosphere, people, architecture and the weather!
On the way to Omsk my filmback opened up by accident, film burned…
The nicest locals in Siberia! They hooked us up soo good with transportation, spots, food, sim cards! Thanks guys!
The Skateshop in the middle of Siberia!
more waves… Omsk is the city of biketrack waves!
Supermarket in Russia!
The beautiful architecture in the center of the city…
a little bit outside of the city…
Breakfast in the Restaurant car on the way to Krasnoyarsk! By the way, just incase if you were wondering why I had only so few photos from Omsk, its because I think somewhere in Beijing I lost a roll of film from Omsk, bummer.
Kirill and Naim! Naim and Stas joined our trip from Siberia!
From London all the way to Krasnoyarsk, Siberia!
Danny Hochman isn’t a soldier, but is a warrior when it comes to film technical maneuvers!
Build in the mid 1950s, took 16 years to build, supplies 6000 Million Watts, & is 1km long, stops a lot of water!
It felt really weird being at the Dam, you hear this high frequency of electricity streaming through the air at all times, and it just felt really soviet… At the left side of the Dam there was this huge painting of Lenin’s head in all red. It was a pretty unusual experience being there, I am glad we went there.
Myself at the Gate of Dragon (which is a playground by the way)… Photo by Michi or Cates
And we are out of Krasnoyask. Cates wanted to take a car to Irkutsk, but the door was missing and the owner got really pissed that he sat in his abondoned run down piece of shit vehicle… mutans… Its really hard to film or take photos in Siberia from or of the locals, they just hate it.
Dan Zvereff, Fs Boardslide Pop Out!
And our journey continued in Irkutsk, one of the most beautiful cities in Siberia. Also known as the Paris of the East!
then we went to Lake Baikal and had some of the best fish I have ever ate in my life!
