A few nice women scarf images I found:
Moscow, Apr 2013 – 36

This is the same couple you saw a couple of photos further back, standing close together just outside the entrance to the Park Kultury metro station in central Moscow.
Here, they were sitting on a park bench across the street. They were off to my left side, and I didn’t even see them at first — I was concentrating instead on a little girl feeding a huge flock of pigeons (shown in the next photo in this Flickr set).
And when I did see them, it didn’t occur to me that they were the same people I had seen (and photographed) just a few minutes earlier. In the previous photo, the woman’s hood is down, and you saw the man’s face from the other side.
As for the pigeon … well, sometimes you get lucky.
Note: I chose this as my "photo of the day" for Apr 16, 2013.
Note: this photo was published in a Jun 23, 2013 blog titled "The Very Best Love Advice on Yahoo Answers."
Moving into 2014, the photo was published in an Oct 20, 2014 Lifehack blog titled "10 Forgotten Habits Happy Couples Have That Make Their Relationships Last." It was also published in an undated (early November 2014) blog titled "42 Pieces Of Life Advice That’s Never Too Late For Anyone To Know."
Moving into 2015, the photo was published in an undated (mid-May 2015) blog in LifeBuzz titled "Marriage Customs."
It’s April, 2013 and I know I’m in Moscow … but beyond that, I don’t really know where I am. Well, it’s not really that bad — I just feel like I don’t know where I am. I’m staying in a quiet little hotel in the historical center of the city, just off Ostozhenka Street, and about a mile from the Kremlin. I can see the famous gold-domed "Christ the Savior" church from the street, and I’m just a couple blocks from the Park Kultury metro station. But I can’t read any of the street signs, I can’t understand what any of the people on the street are saying to each other, and if I lost my bearings I think would probably end up floating along the Moscow River, face-down …
But people are people, wherever they are. You might notice a few differences from the look and style and clothing of the New Yorkers I normally photograph … but not so much. The weather here in early April is much like it was for the first three months of the year in NYC: cold temperatures, raw wind, gray leaden skies. People are bundled up in heavy dark coats, scarves, and hats; if you look only at the people, you might not know where you were located. But the signs and posters and billboards are different, and that gives you a clue. I looked at one familiar face on a poster for quite a while before I realized it was telling me (in Russian) that Kevin Costner has a rock band, and that he’s performing in in Moscow. Good luck with that!
Anyway, this is a small sample of the people I saw along Ostozhenka Street and outside the Park Kultury metro station.
