A few months ago over in Moscow I met BMX photographer Artem Chernousov. We hit it off right away and hung out all night. I asked Artem to send me some of his pics for a portfolio type of thingy on the site. He did, but I've been too busy to get something up. Before I'm losing his mail completely with all his pics I thought I'd just throw them up on the site for you to enjoy. BMX from Russia, seen through the viewer of Artem. Looking forward to meet back up with him in Tallinn in a few weeks. Aik!

The weekly door to door papers that we receive usually don't have too much to offer. They show what soccer games are coming up, which furniture store is open that weekend or which local won a fishing contest. But the latest issue had something about a street art expo in the library closeby. We decided to go take a look during the opening.
