St. Pete--Babushka

She and her friend, an old lady with a cigarette, must have seen me shooting Matviyenko, Putin and the air conditioners nearby.

"Come over here and take a picture of me," she called out.

Her friend stepped aside when I approached. "She doesn't like to be photographed," was the explanation.

But her friend was curious: she stood behind me as I was shooting and commented: "All your pictures appear on that little screen right away!"

I came up to show her what I thought was the best shot and suddenly she seemed flustered: "Oh, I'm not gonna be able to see anything there!" She didn't realize the picture was on the monitor, not inside the camera or anything. She loved it.

I wished her and her friend good health, and they wished all the best to me.

On this picture, she reminds me of the aged Anna Akhmatova, just a little bit: surprisingly graceful and still full of life and good humor.

Turns out it's a woman's job, after all.

Sergei Belyayev, former head of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, received 8.1 percent of the votes.

#1--Valentina Matviyenko, the presidential envoy to the Northwest Region, got 48.61 percent.

#2--Anna Markova, St. Pete's vice governor, has 15.89 percent.

Only 28.99 percent of the voters showed up on the election day, Sept. 21.

Of those who did show up, 10.97 percent voted "against all candidates."

The second round is scheduled for Oct. 5.
