It was a harsh year

It was a harsh year


Posted By on Dec 31, 2020

I think nobody will argue with it. For me, it was so difficult that I think without my wonderful wife’s financial support I would have already returned to sales and worked in some pitiful store at best. Moreover, in the first half of the year, we were planning to move to another country. Obviously, we couldn’t make it due to the COVID-19. Another dream crashed. Best of all it could be described by the amazing song “Nothing Left To Say” by Imagine Dragons. Every word is just like my life and feelings during this no simple year. http://www.denischurin.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Imagine-Dragons-Nothing-Left-To-Say-kissvk.com_.mp3 2020 also took several greatly talented people who were the landmarks in their spheres. One of them is Sean Connery (I won’t mention the others because they were Russians and you unlikely know them). But as for the creative side of my life, it was a great year. The best so far. I not only took part in an exhibition and got to the final in three photo contests but also have grown very much as a photographer. I compare my photographs taken a year ago to my latest ones and can see an enormous difference. I can even say that I got to the next level. And even more. Exactly this year, I launched my YouTube channel and started to do videography much more seriously. It was a year of immensely huge progress for me. And to walk this year off, I traditionally summing up with nine best photographs. Just like the last year, it is two nines but this time no commercial works at all. All of them were published during the year (but it doesn’t mean all were taken in 2020). The first group is the most liked on my Instagram account (I didn’t even consider Facebook because my photographs have too little attention there). The second one are the best photographs in my opinion. And as always, I believe that all the best is ahead! Thanks to everyone who follows me and liked my photographs! A special, most warm gratitude to those who commented on photographs, watched my videos, rated, and wrote comments on them! You have been really helping and supporting me! Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to everyone, my friends! Take care of yourself and your beloved ones. See you next year! Follow me on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

Duck tales

Duck tales


Posted By on Dec 2, 2020

Recently, I have uploaded quite an interesting video on my YouTube channel. Actually, it called “Near The Old Fortress” because it was filmed not far from our local (Leningrad region, Russia) landmark called Krepost’ Oresheck or also known as Shlisselburg Fortress. That’s an ancient Russian stronghold placed on the island in Ladoga lake near the Neva river head. But although this fortress appears in the video and it really looks great, the main and most interesting part of the film to my mind is duck tales caught in the frame. It’s not only a sort of mallard yoga exercises but also a small confrontation between two types of ducks. You can check it by yourself: It was a real pleasure to me to work on this short story and, frankly speaking, I assess it as one of my best videos so far. Therefore, I really hope that you like it either. Follow me on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. If you want to SUPPORT my YouTube channel or me personally, you can do it here: for the World, for...
