Stop the moment. Anapa celebrates the Day of the elderly

Anapa Black Sea October 1, 2019 Photo: Anapa Black Sea Stop moments. Anapa celebrates the Day of the elderly Today, October 1, marks the International Day of Older Persons. When you have more than seven or eight decades behind you, many begin to mentally scroll backward. I would like, by pressing the button, to slow down at least a moment. Anapchanka Maria Stepanovna Starkova knows how to stop moments professionally, having worked for many years as a photojournalist of our newspaper. In the 70-90s, many Anapans knew her. Moved to our city from the Urals. She was fond of photography. A talented professional in Maria Starkova was discerned by the photo correspondent of the then Soviet Black Sea coast, Ivan Kokalov. There was an offer to work in the editorial office. A spectacular energetic blonde with an invariably light scarf on her neck and a camera appeared on construction sites and in health resorts, in schools and medical facilities, on vineyards and livestock farms. There were no digital cameras at the time. I had to save every shot of the film, and then inhale a couple of chemicals, developing and printing photos. In Anapa, exhibitions of works by Maria Starkova were repeatedly held, the style and quality of which were noted at regional and all-Union competitions. Hundreds of photographs were preserved in her archive, in which they managed to capture the famous Soviet singers Lyudmila Zykina and Edita Piekha, cosmonauts, Heroes of the Soviet Union Pyotr Klimuk and Viktor Gorbatko, but the Man of Labor remained the protagonist for the photojournalist. Even more, Maria Stepanovna, by her admission, loved to photograph children and animals. She simply could not get past an interesting shot. So there was a picture of a calf licking a bald man. I noticed this funny scene when I was traveling by bus somewhere to the district on an editorial assignment, she later said. I asked the driver to stop and, like crazy, rushed to this man, I take out a camera and turn to either a man or a calf: Please repeat! Fortunately for me, the calf returned and continued to lick the owner’s head. Once, while doing a report from a livestock farm, Maria Stepanovna noticed how the pigs ran up to the cow and the most lively reached for the udder. Click! This picture was awarded at the Rare Frame-94 contest held by the editors of the popular Animal World program. Anapa photocore was sent a booklet autographed by the famous TV presenter Nikolai Drozdov. Maria Starkova has long been retired, but the love of life and people, the desire to be useful to others in the soul have not died out. These qualities led her to the Anapa parish of St. Seraphim of Sarov. When the church was located on Grebenskaya street, she prepared dinners for disadvantaged people in the parish refectory. Now she is no longer taking pictures, but she is trying to provide all possible assistance to the parish. Recently I designed an album with photographs of other authors, dedicated to the parish life eventful. Oh, what are we all about me! Maria Stepanovna threw up her hands; we have so many wonderful people in the parish. And she begins to talk about her sisters in spirit and faith Olga Ivanovna Polumyskina, Galina Nikolaevna Abramova and other parishioners who have seen a lot in their lifetime. So, Zoya Semenovna Timofeeva, raised three children and made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, to the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Galina Aleksandrovna Sutormina spent her post-war childhood and youth in the legendary Sevastopol, and today she runs the Anapa Orthodox Library. Deprivation and famine of the war era was experienced by Larisa Aleksandrovna Melkova, who, despite her very venerable age, does not miss a single divine service in the church, and is still actively involved in the Immortal Regiment social movement. Pictures of parishioners with touching ordinations found a place in the photo album. These women and Maria Stepanovna Starkova are related and spiritually warmed by the Orthodox faith. Thanks to her, they learned to patiently endure age-related diseases, perceive life as a moment in comparison with Eternity and value every minute as a Gift of God.
