joyful dynamo well captured in your shot. spring backdrop, the energy of the two girls celebrating their breaking free, the parade. an excellent street shot!

interesting about that word "russ". historians say, russian nation's name actually comes from scandinavia. russ were what byzantines called the swedish vikings that had established themselves as rulers of slav tribes around kiev. there is a tenth century byzantine scroll listing members of a kievan 'rus' delegation to constantinopole: ingemars, jaans, gustavs, etc... :)

warm regards,
