Pictures from Armenia

5


5 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

From April to October of 2015, I spent six months volunteering in Armenia, doing internships. During that time I traveled the country from north to south, east to west, taking hundreds of pictures of rolling hills, peaceful mountain meadows, busy cities, lush foggy forests, ancient churches, glistening lakes and the iconic Mt. Ararat. And because I stayed there for so long, I got to see places most normal tourists never see. I even went on a five day excursion to Nagorno-Karabakh as well, a disputed territory few people ever get to visit.

For the low price of five Simbi for five photos, you too can see the dramatic landscape of the southern Caucasus. Unless you have a specific sight you want to see, all photos will be chosen at random and will be just of scenery, not of myself. I'll also tell you the location of each photo I send; feel free to ask more about them too. All photos will be sent as an attachment in messages. If you use them anywhere, I kindly request that you credit me please!

Other than that, enjoy!

Training & Qualifications


I stayed in Armenia for six months and went on excursions every weekend with the Birthright Armenia organization, living in Yerevan for the first four months and Vanadzor for the final two. And I always had a camera phone with me.

I just finished reading Suren's book, "Odinochka: Armenian Tales from the Gulag." It was surprisingly hard to put down, and I read the whole book in... a few hours. I would highly recommend this to everyone, as it gives a seemingly real and human account of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. The main character, Vartan, is a master story-teller and weaves his accounts of the 1915 events in with his current imprisonment in Siberia. I cried a few times during this very touching recollection. show more

Suren is a fantastic writer. His historical fiction book on Odinochka shows readers a world with which most of us are unfamiliar, and although it take...s place roughly a hundred years ago it's still relevant to what's going on in plenty of places across the globe today. It's an easy read, it all comes across as real and true, and it tugs at the heart strings.show more

Talking about the Walking Dead with Suren was great, loved hearing his thoughts. Didn't love the new episode, but the chat was a good prefix.

About Suren Oganessian

My name's Suren Oganessian (a nice unique name I inherited from my grandfather), and I'm an up-and-coming indy novelist with one book out and many more to come soon! I was born in California but have ...been forced to immigrate to Florida in pursuit of the American dream (i.e. affordable housing, gas, everything), although I feel that my heart truly belongs in Armenia, and I volunteered there for six months back in 2015. I have a Master's degree in Creative Writing and the debt to prove it, making Simbi just the kind of place for me.show more
