Portrait of a Botanical Garden with @shish0va

“The dark tones of the grass are challenging for me to capture, but it is something beautiful which I look for everywhere—in the mountains of Georgia, in London, and even in unexpected places like Rostov Kremlin,” says Irina Shishova (@shish0va), an Instagrammer from Pushchino, in Russia. Working for a TV company by day, Irina says she is inspired by everything around her—from internet cables, to steel works, to cooking the Russian dish pelmeni. Most of all she draws inspiration from nature. “My hometown is so small, it looks more like a green park than a city. All my photos are taken of the grass, the gardens of residents, fields near the city, and all the grass that I can find and capture during my life.”
