Moscow, 1982

These are my grandparents. They went on vacation to the USSR in 1982. I have to assume the two men in hats to the left are KGB spies. Presumably the closer one is going for the young, hip look. I think the blue jacket my grandpa is wearing was bought at GUM.

There’s a whole reel of slides, some of which I’ve got scanned and on flickr. I’ve also digitized a recording of my grandpa narrating the slides. Once I’ve got all the images, I’ll try to sync up the slides and the audio.

    Most people find excuses NOT to see vacation slide shows. You, my friend, are a different breed altogether.

    And if the exotic, foreign city in those slides was Winnipeg, I wouldn’t blame them. This, however, is from a country that doesn’t even exist anymore!

    Ha, and it looks like those dudes are ready to draw on the photographer at a moment’s notice, should the need arise.

    Hey, I love these photos. They’re amazing. It makes me remember that when I take photos of my hotel room when traveling, it’s not because I’m being stupid, it’s because it will be awesome 30 years later.
