Nice contrast, I really like how the left third of the picture is dark while the rest is well lit.

Bob ))) as for me, I'm not ready for the Olympics. today I'm not in shape. need to warm up, then I will be ready
but, they are ready.

By the way, I love Sochi, I went there on a business trip.
I do not like pandemonium in summertime, so I've often arrived there in winter. Off-season is the best time, like now

to the point!

let's go there after the Olympics. This is super trick and first prize for ingenuity.
I have friends there, girlfriends (for Joel B, certainly) and the Black Sea.

Bob, I don't know here's my answer.
I'm not especially worried for affairs of politicians, their projects.

If our people, plus the worldwide, would need the Olympics, we would have done it even at the North Pole . There's necessary a collective will of the people .

If we see unavailability to carrying out games, it means that not all men supports the decision of politicians.

I so think. Come on, and look at this.
