Kyrgyzstan: Photo-roundup with not a word about politics

A winter time is ending, and Kyrgyzstan is waiting for the hot spring: the rallies, protest actions and so on. But let's talk about beauty, not about the endless politic. What was the photowinter in Kyrgyzstan?

Livejournal user doctormoro posted the unique photos of the famous Kyrgyz actor Suymenkul Chokmorov. The story of these images is unique also. There is a fan of the old film cameras at Diesel Internet forum. Once some woman gave him a bunch of the old films. He scanned them and found out the unique shots from the screen test of the movie “The Scarlett Poppies of the Issyk-Kul” and shots from the filming of that movie. That man kindly provided the shots to doctormoro and he published them in his blog.

Suymenkul Chokmorov
See more unique shots in his blog [ru]. Livejournal user Azamat Imanaliev aka azzzik wrote another part of very interesting notes about his trip to the USA in 2007 year with a lot of nice photos. Read the travel notes of azzzik and realize how the usual Kyrygzstany interpret the USA!

Azzzik's photo
Read and see photos in Azzzik's blog [ru]. Do you know that a lot of Kyrgyzstanis like playing hockey? Do you know that recently there has been the hockey championship in Kyrgyzstan? No? So look, receive evidence and delight! Thanks to azzzik who has visited that championship and made a lot of photos.

Hockey in Kyrgyzstan

Enjoy the last snow shots at Flickr!As livejournal user nuraika said [ru]:

February gave us a cheery wave and sent the last snow kiss. A bit sad that we won't see the snow soon…

Goodbye, blogowinter! The colored and action blogospring is coming to the restless Kyrgyzstan!
