75 years after the most destructive siege in history, the Leningrad Blockade, a woman is selling fruit on Vosstaniya Ulitsa (Street of Uprising). Wonder what her parents and grandparents went through. July, 2017. #saintpetersburg #piter #russia #createcommune #ig_color #ig_dynamic #leningrad #russian #history #moodygrams #streetvendor #storytelling #streetphotography #streetlife #people

    Same will be true about many European countries that went through revolutions and other times of turbulence

    @tatiana.boyle You are right, many people all over Europe and the world had to struggle to survive in past centuries. Itโ€™s still so in many places. But the Leningrad Blockade during WWII must have been hell on earth, and it was man made

    @aleksblondie Thank you! I know it looks a lot like fall or winter, but the pic is from a wet and grey day in July ๐Ÿ˜Š is an old shot

    Well, her parents and grandparents most certainly didn't live through the siege of Leningrad as she is originally from Asia (Uzbekistan I suppose).But great shot though.

    @puuvaik Thank you, cool! I have little to no experience with Soviet faces. But seeing as people move around a lot in our day and age I knew it was a stretch to suppose her parents and grandparents lived in Leningrad. Call it dramatic purposes. But then again: most certainly?
