Who likes White Russians?

Anyone like White Russians? In honour of The Dude - my Mockba-5 (and no, not that Jeff Bridges character who uses Wideluxes).







White Russian, Kodak Tmax400, Z7 scan.

nice! white/cream/brown cameras are underrated, which is weird since linhofs were cream/tan with silver chrome accents, and so were many polaroid land cameras.

someday, i'll do an off-white leica with cream lambskin covers and silver chrome dials.

Another strange name is Moscow Mule. As of person who was born, raised, educated and lived in Moscow, Russia I have no idea why this names comes up. We don't drink anything like this. And we drink a lot... If you walk into LCBO, while it is 40+ outside and see anyone who would buy Wiskey, just speak Russian to them. We drink it as single shot.

The only white drink we have is known as Pervatch. But it is almost forgotten now.

As for camera. I was in train once with person who worked at Mercedes Moscow. He told me how once they recived order from Chechenian klan to make entirely white Ghelentwagen. In and out. Mercedes Germany refused to make it, but provided paint and materials....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Russian_(cocktail)

The traditional cocktail known as a Black Russian, which first appeared in 1949, becomes a White Russian with the addition of cream. Neither drink is Russian in origin, but both are so named due to vodka being the primary ingredient. It is unclear which drink preceded the other.

In 1947 they had card distribution for food removed.
In eighties we didn't have coffee. In many cities cream was not existing.

The only mix we were making is 99% alcohol with wild berries juice. Some brave were collecting them on swarms.

Calling it Russian is odd. Utterly...
