this is the place

This is the place of peace and quiet.

It feels like time has been standing still here for years and years. Life is highly slow‑paced and calm. There is no time to hurry.

You can find this place in the southern Russia, on the outskirts of Shakhty, a town in Rostov Oblast. The photos and field recordings were produced during May, 2014. This is an attempt to recreate the spirit of this pastoral location and let you experience it whenever your soul needs some peaceful retreat.

Well, now breathe in and enjoy being here and now.
