Learn Russian through Shop Signs in Saint Petersburg Vlog

When I travel to Russia, and take a bus anywhere, my neck gets sore from trying to read all the signs. By the way, it isn't stupid not to know the word for "shop sign". That isn't a word (watch the video to see) that I have ever seen on an actual shop sign!

I definitely I know how enjoyable it is to travel to a foreign country and do something as simple as read shop signs. It's a great way to see words we know put together in new and interesting combinations. If you can't travel to Russia, perhaps recreate the experience by finding famous Russian stores on the Internet and reading their websites and sales offers.

This is a great channel for Russian language learners of all levels to follow on YouTube. Even though I have been studying Russian for years, have spent many months in Russia, and I still watch everything Angelos Georgakis publishes because I can always find a few new words, or see words in new combinations. Also, he uses subtitles.

Extreme photo cropping

The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.

Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

What is it that you love? Let the world know what you love the most with this fully customizable tee. The "Fill in the Blank" text below the "I Heart" design can be changed.

As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.

I just got done watching Michael Phelps get his 8 for 8 gold medals.
