rurikids:

War and Peace (1966) - dir. Sergey Bondarchuk

The first ball of Natasha Rostova.

I have long been waiting for you,” that frightened happy little girl seemed to say by the smile that replaced the threatened tears, as she raised her hand to Prince Andrew’s shoulder. They were the second couple to enter the circle. Prince Andrew was one of the best dancers of his day and Natasha danced exquisitely. Her little feet in their white satin dancing shoes did their work swiftly, lightly, and independently of herself, while her face beamed with ecstatic happiness. (Leo Tolstoy. “War and Peace”)

About:

All things Soviet (1922—1991): photography, objects, songs, movies, persons.

I'll collect Soviet memorabilia here that I like and that gives that special nostalgic feeling for the "good old times". I'm Russian and I was born in the USSR, so some of it carries a special meaning for me, they are things I remember, bits of my childhood. Earlier eras also fascinate me big time. I want to capture daily life of ordinary people in the big country rather than its political and military history. Life that is still remembered and missed by many.
