A guy rests leaned at the statue in Yerevan after spending the whole day inside a city lake during Armenian water festival, national holiday called “Vardavar”. The tradition comes from Pagan times, but currently is considered as a Christian holiday. On this day both friends and strangers drench water on each other, thus “sharing with the blessing”. Because of unbearable heat, most people don’t mind becoming suddenly wet. Many young people do not get out of fountains or small pools of the city.

Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.
