candy floss ( photo 52 )


my entry to '52 weeks' contest by @wwwiebe

( the initial post & rules , all 52 prompts, this week entry )

I got this capture during a walk at the local park on May, 9 -- which is celebrated as a Victory day in Russia (victory in the WW2).

Mного людей в этот день украшают себя наградными ленточками ордена Святого Георгия (конечно, никто их не награждал и они не имеют никакого права носить эти ленты). Но, конечно, если нацепить ленту или две, на свою сумку или машину, можно увереннее показывать всем, что ты патриот! Тем более что это стоит минимальных усилий. (Вспомни: что дешево досталось - то мало ценится).
Many people decorate themselves with award ribbons of the Order of St. George on this day (of course, no one has awarded them and they have no right to wear these ribbons). But, of course, if you put a tape or two on your bag or car, you can more confidently show everyone that you are a patriot! Moreover, it is worth the minimum effort. (Remember: what got cheap is not much appreciated).

А в прошлом году, возник новый тренд (или был удачно выдуман маркетологами) -- солдатские пилотки оливкового цвета, они продавались везде, люди покупали их и носили... что они хотели этим показать, надевая на себя военную пилотку? бог весть... но кто-то подзаработал, это точно.
And last year, a new trend arose (or it was successfully invented by marketologists) - olive-colored soldier caps; they were being sold everywhere, people were buying them like hot dogs, and wore... what did they want to show by putting on a military cap? God knows ... but someone made a lot of money, that's for sure.
Понятное дело, эта профанация мне не нравится ни разу. Поэтому у меня нет фотографий, совсем. Я принципиально отворачивался и не фотографировал эти сюжеты -- наверное, это плохой репортаж... но это моя позиция. Зато в тот день я сфотографировал, например, этих детишек, уничтожающих сахарную вату.
I really do not like this and do not welcome this, that is obvious. Therefore, I captured no photos. I basically turned away and did not photograph these plots; probably this is a bad report... but this is my civic position. But on that day, I photographed, for example, these kids eating a giant candy floss delicacy.

Perhaps I am wrong...

Maybe this is my strange perception, but the hole on the top cotton candy reminded me (for some reason) of the image of Stalin ...
It turns out a photo over which you can to reason ....
Do not throw slippers at me! :-)))

Может я не права...
Может это мое странное восприятие, но дырка на верхней сахарной вате мне (почему-то) сразу напомнила образ Сталина...
Получается фотография, над которой можно порассуждать....
Не кидайте в меня тапки! :-)))


помилуйте, ну какие тут могут быть тапки! ассоциации это личное дело (и богатый внутр.мир) каждого.
лично я сталинского профиля не вижу (нос крупноват..)


Да, я согласна что нос крупноват, поэтому я и написала что напомнила (а не похожа, нос меня тоже смутил) :-)))
Поэтому я посмотрела фото 2-3 раза, для проверки моего восприятия, но все равно оно оставалось прежним.
Иногда я сама себе этого объяснить не могу.

This picture was taken awesome
Marshmallow is almost blown away and still to eat it

I also prefer seeing these kids enjoying what we call a barbapapa in french 😉
I think it comes from the contraction of words barbe à papa (daddy's beard)

this is an amusing name that is very closed to mine, so it happened in my youth that friends called me Barbapapa 😃


ohhh!! so nice to know. barbapapa = sugar cotton?.. thank you! i like to know the world outside thru language, very much!


Isn't that a word that sounds nicely ..? every french child has one day thrilled hearing this word promise of a sweet sugary experience ...😃

That is a huge piece of cotton candy! I've never seen one that large before. I bet both those girls were buzzing when they got home!

A lovely shot and they call that Candyfloss over here. Some locals call it Spook Breath hahaha.


o! "Spook Breath", nice, I will try to remember that. thank you!

and a little dark !BEER


Thank you kindly and I think it was the children over here that cloned the name a long time ago. They said that when they bite it that it changes into nothing hahaha.
Blessings and thank you also for the token.
