Lenin statues covered with snow

If you read my blog, I’m sure you know about my passion for Lenin statues.

This week, Ailsa‘s photo challenge theme is Snowy, so time for a session of Lenin statues covered with snow!

I’ve always wondered if anyone removes the snow from statues – in the deep of winter you rarely see Lenin covered, but it could be because the snow falls or is pushed by the wind. What is sure is that in the morning after a very heavy snow fall, Lenin statues can look hilarious! Here are a few (from me but also found elsewhere):

Lenin in Brest (Belarus). This one is already on my blog – and it comes as result number 20 in a Google Images search about “Lenin snow”. I think I can claim I’m a global expert! 😉
