      What a nice photo? And look at that DOF! Actually, this is or was very common to see people in parks reading.

      Karlen. Thank you! Also note that I've just figured out which park it was in.

      How? And what is the name of the park?

      Karlen. I noticed that the next sequentially numbered slide was the Red Gate Tower, so I searched around in Panaramio (Google Maps with Images turned on). I do not know the name of the park but it also has a sculpture of Mikhail Lermontov. It is the triangle trapped between roads across from the building.

      A lovely detail: Something she bought, wrapped in paper, in a net bag.
