  1. Yes, I saw this picture a couple of days ago and was wondering since. How did you take it? Were you allowed, or did you take liberty?

    I ask b/c five years ago I decided to commit a blasphemy and to also take a picture in the Pushkin museum. They don’t allow taking pictures and take a double fee from foreigners, so it was my action of protest, if you like. I chose Picasso’s ‘Girl on a Ball’. I snapped it, but five years ago I had a very simple camera, which was not silent. Naturally, all women supervisors became very agitated. I was with friends, so all together we came closer and never left each other’s side until we moved into the next hall.

    Just shows how mischievous I can be sometimes! 🙂
