To begin with, I’d like to say that I have a friend. His name is Nick. He lives in England, and sometimes I come to see him there.

Well, I took this photo in England last summer while visiting my friend. Nick works as a bus driver, so I took this picture the moment he was just doing his job.

As I have just mentioned, you can see my friend Nick sitting at the wheel of his bus. Nick is a nice guy. He has short brown hair, fine figure, and he is a strong man.

Actually, not much is happening in the photo. Nick is holding the wheel of his bus, looking and smiling at me. That was me who asked him to turn around and look at me, because at that time I was on the point of taking the picture.

Why did I take this photo? You know, taking photos is my hobby. I always do it when I see something worth being photographed. Meeting Nick was an important event for me, and I just couldn’t help taking the photo. In addition to it, I love my friend. It’s quite natural to take photos of people you love.

I decided to show this picture to you because you have always wanted to know how Nick looks like. And this picture is the best one. Actually, if you want to see some more, I will show them to you next time. Now we have to leave for school. Let’s go!

To begin with, I’d like to say that I have an aunt. Her name is Julia. Five years ago she married an English businessman and moved to England. We haven’t lost our contacts, and sometimes I come to see her there.

As I have just mentioned, you can see my aunt Julia. She has always wanted to be a doctor, so you can see her in a doctor’s smock. She is a pretty young woman, very slim, and kind.

Actually, not much is happening in the photo. Julia is looking and smiling at me. She is holding a pen and some papers. She is writing something, maybe her patent’s anamnesis. Julia is a good doctor, she cares for her patients very much.

Why did I take this photo? Well, it’s just because I wanted to have a photo of my aunt wearing a special medical uniform. That’s why I asked my aunt to tear herself away from her work and let me take the photo.

I decided to show this picture to you because you have always wanted to know how Julia looks like. And what’s more, I hope you will help me to edit some details of this photo using a special graphic programme. I know that you are an expert in computer design.

Anyway, I hope you like my aunt very much. If you’d like to see some more pictures, I will show them to you next time.

To begin with, I’d like to say that I have an aunt. Her name is Victoria. Five years ago she married an English businessman and moved to England. We haven’t lost our contacts, and sometimes I come to see her there.

As I have just mentioned, you can see my aunt Victoria. She has always wanted to be a teacher of foreign languages, so you can see her in her teacher’s room. She is a pretty woman, very clever, and kind. Her hair is red and curly. Victoria is short-sighted and has to wear glasses. Besides, you can see a table with so many dictionaries on it.

Actually, not much is happening in the photo. Victoria is looking and smiling at me. She is having a pen, and a sheet of paper. I guess, my aunt is preparing for a lesson. Maybe she is writing some vocabulary out of the dictionaries or making some tests for her students. Victoria is a very inventive teacher, and she cares for her students very much.

Why did I take this photo? Well, it’s just because I wanted to have a photo of my aunt in her teacher’s room. That’s why I asked my aunt to tear herself away from her work and let me take the photo.

I decided to show this picture to you because you have always wanted to know how Victoria looks like. And what’s more, I hope you will help me to edit some details of this photo using a special graphic programme. I know that you are an expert in computer design.

Ваш ответ
From the very beginning, I’d like to say that I am a regular traveler. From time to time, I visit exotic countries where I usually go windsurfing, diving, and the like.

Well, this photo I took last year when I was on my holidays in Vietnam. That was a wonderful trip full of extreme actions and unforgettable experience. During my trip I was taking lots of pictures, but this one is my favorite.

You can see wonderful yellow fish in the foreground of this photo. In the background you can see rocks of various size and shape.

Actually, nothing much is happening in the photo. Some fish is swimming by in the depth of the see. Besides, the sun is trying to shine through but only some specks of light can be seen.

Why did I take this photo? First of all, I should confess taking photos is my hobby. Wherever I go I always take my camera with me. Even if I dive deep, the camera is always on. As to this photo, I was so much fascinated by such unusual look of fish that I couldn’t help taking the picture.

I decided to show the picture to you because I’d like to share my impressions from diving with you. I want you to see how beautiful the bottom of the sea may be and what unusual things you are faced there with.

Well, I hope you understand my feelings and how much I’m into traveling and diving. By the way, next year I am going to visit Vietnam one more time. Don’t you want to join me?

To begin with, I’d like to say that I have a sister whose name is Julia. She is a young lady who likes keeping fit very much. She goes to a gym almost every day to do her physical exercises.

Well, I took this photo last month when I dropped in her gym on my way home. She was right in the middle of her training when I saw her. I had never seen my sister doing intensive physical exercises so I decided to take the photo.

Once again, you can see my sister whom I have just spoken about. Plus, there are some other girls who are training themselves together with my sister. Besides, you can see some training equipment, which is being used by the girls.

You know, my sister is a willing trainee so she always puts a lot of effort to do exercises properly. In this photo you see how Julia is holding her dumbbells and keeping her left leg up. All her mates are doing the same. Look at the girls! They are so focused on what they are doing.

Why did I take this photo? You know, I don’t have any photos of my sister working out so hard. Frankly speaking, I thought Julia was not serious when she decided to attend fitness class. I was convinced she did it just for show. But I was mistaken very much. When I saw Julia doing her exercise I just couldn’t help taking the photo.

I decided to show this picture to you to prove the fact that my sister is a sporty girl, and she takes her fitness class seriously.

Well, I have other photos of Julia, but I will show them to you next time.

At the very beginning, I’d like to say that I like taking photos very much. Whenever I am faced with a significant event or a remarkable person, I activate my camera and make videos or take pictures.

As to this picture, I took it last year during New Year’s Day, which was celebrated on grand scale. I took part in all the festivities, which were arranged in the city.

Well, you see Santa Claus in this picture. In Russia, we name him Grandfather Frost. He is a fairy-tale character who is indispensable in any celebration of New Year’s Day. In the background, you see some children who are singing and dancing in a ring. In the distance some fir-trees can also be seen.

Grandfather Frost is the highlight of the celebration. He is standing in front holding his big magic staff and greeting all the people around. As I have already mentioned above, there are some people who are singing and dancing with pleasure and excitement. By all appearance, all participants of the celebration are having a good time. 

Why did I take this photo? Frankly speaking, I had never seen such impressive magnificent Grandfather Frost. He seemed so real that I couldn’t help taking the picture of him.

I decided to show this picture to you because I want to share my impressions with you. Now you see how merry New Year’s Day was last year. I hope you will join me next time without fail.

To begin with, I’d like to say that I have a friend whose name is John. He is a handsome man who is married to a pretty woman and has a lovely daughter. He lives in England but sometimes comes to Russia to see me.

Well, I took this photo last summer when John and his family were staying with me during their trip to Russia. Frankly speaking, their visit was unexpected, yet I was overexcited to have guests.

In the photo you can see my friend John, his wife Julia, and his daughter Mary. They love each other very much, that’s why they wanted to be photographed all together.

They all are sitting on the sofa looking and smiling at me. John is embracing his wife and daughter showing that he is a devoted husband and father. By all appearance, all the people are very happy.

Why did I take this photo? You know, I had never seen John’s family all together before. So that was my first time I met and received them at my place. I was so charmed by such harmonious family that I just couldn’t help taking some photos.

I decided to show this picture to you because you have always wanted to know what my friend John looks like. Besides, I want to share my impressions of John’s family with you. Now I’m sure you want to meet them too.
