Sepia Saturday 182


Hello Sepians! This week I am finally participating again after a long break. This week's theme is generally interpreted as "Father's Day", my choice of picture is more concrete: "A man and a horse". I guess this picture is the only one in the family archive containing a horse - and I love it! It is my granddad Michael Alexeevich Maximov, whom I missed to meet in person by a decade :(( Unfortunetely I do not have a lot to tell about this picture - I guess it was taken in 50s. Dad told me that it was a trip to Romania. My granddad, as well as nan, his wife, was a scientist and studied oriental countries (specialised in India).

И вот я снова с "Сепией по субботам". Так люблю фотографию своего дедушки с лошадкой, что не смогла не поучаствовать, когда "показали" тему - всадника в сельской местности. Дедушку моего звали Михаил Алексеевич Максимов, и мы с ним, к сожалению "разминулись" на целых десять лет. Я знаю его только по рассказам и фотографиям. Он, как и бабуля, закончил когда-то Московский Институт Востоковедения и был востоковедом (специализировался на Индии). На фото - пятидесятые и, если верить папе, поездка в Румынию.

  1. It is a lovely photo. There seems to be an affinity between them so I wouldn't think it was taken on a trip away?
