Description In the old yards like this (9 Voikova street) you can really feel the spirit of the old Yalta despite the modern elements. The picturesque building on the right of this photo has a great history. In 1900 the famous Russian author M.Gorky lived here. Also many famous people visited it including world known dramatist and writer Anton Chekhov, Russian opera singer Feodor Chaliapin (the possessor of a deep and expressive bass voice), Russian composer, pianist and conductor Sergei Rachmaninoff and others.
Vlad [CrimeanMemories], Yalta and Kiev Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I am a photographer from Ukraine. I really love Crimea and I shot many Crimean landscapes, historical places or simply scenes of life. Here you can find only the best of them, carefully processed and ready for printing. I hope you like my captures and maybe order some of them as fine art prints, framed prints or canvas prints. I will be very proud of it because I worked hard on each photo trying to put a piece of my soul and a touch of great Crimean atmosphere into them. Thank you kindly for visiting my page on Imagekind!
