Part of the inspiration for this photo-blogging madness came from randomly submitting a photo to cabinporn.com after a recent journey to Nikola-Lenivets, Kaluga region, Russia.
Here are a few other highlights from this fascinating area of Russia.
A round house with doors
Contrasting green with the birches
A wooden bull
The disused church above the Yrga River
The Universal Mind (with child relaxing within)
And these are from my first trip in 2011.
A place for rest similar to a grave.
Bugs up a pole.
A pine cone structure
Clouds on the ground for cloud watching on
