An exchange of smiles, an "Okay to take our picture" nod of the heads, zoom, focus, click.
"Muchas gracious, Senoras." (The only Russian I speak .)

Pretty doggone fabulous capture here, Charlie.
Love the smiles on their faces and the scarves on their heads.
Makes me yearn for my own grandmothers again. I hate that I was too young when they passed, and can't ask them all the family history I would love to now know.

Nice capture Charlie.
In an ugly American way, those other teens (!) I traveled with and who did not speak Russian, were taught to say "Spicey Bar" for please/thank you. A terrible distortion of spah-see-bo.
And it got a wonderful response.

Thanks Tim and Scott.
In REALLY foreign lands like the USSR I learned such words as the local "Please and thank you."
But mostly I just smiled a lot and used basic sign language. It usually worked for photographing people.

One of my best Russia/USSR memories was playing Frisbee in Leningrad as some puzzled and intrigued soldiers looked on. When one landed by one of them we got a huge smile as he attempted to throw it back.
Circa 1970.

A small event, Scott. That will always bring a smile to you.
Photographed or not- those little events are reason enough to travel.
