Traveling in space and time: the Soviet Union in 1982 with Kodachrome

Português:
Em 1982, quando morava na França para estudos, tivemos (eu e Magi, minha esposa na época) a oportunidade de visitar a União Soviética (US), através de uma excursão em grupo tendo destinos, atrações e datas pré-estabelecidos (única forma de visitar a US). Visitamos Moscou, Leningrado (atual São Petersburgo) e Kiev na Ucrânia que, na época, fazia parte da US. De Moscou à Leningrado fomos num trem noturno. De Leningrado à Kiev, num vôo pela Aeroflot. Embora os destinos e programas turísticos nas três cidades estivessem definidos, houve certa liberdade e pude também sair de forma independente, usando o metrô e passeando nas ruas, o que me permitiu fazer algumas fotos de forma pessoal. Na viagem, utilizei uma Olympus OM-1n para Petro-Branco e uma Olympus OM-2n para os slides. Utilizei Kodachrome 64, o melhor filme existente para fotografias em cores. As lentes que usei foram as Olympus Zuiko 21/3.5, 35/2, 100/2.8 e uma tele Tokina 200/3.5. Após já ter apresentado as fotos PB, decidi fazer a cópia dos slides e, ao invés de fazer escaneamentos, utilizei a câmera digital Olympus E-M1 II e uma maravilhosa lente Zuiko Macro 30mm F3.5. Foi necessário certo trabalho de ajuste (e limpeza de fungos e poeiras) nas fotos, o que fiz com ACDSee sem, no entanto, ter modificado seus conteúdos.
English:
In 1982, when living in France for my studies, we (me and my wife Magi, at the time) had the opportunity of visiting the USSR by an organized tour having the locations, dates and attractions pre-defined (only way to go to the USSR). We visited Moscow, Leningrad (now called Saint Petersburg) and Kiev in Ukraine (in that time, it was part of the USSR). From Moscow to Leningrad, we took a night train and from Leningrad to Kiev, a flight with Aeroflot. In spite of having the attractions and schedules defined, we had a limited freedom and I could take the subway and walk on streets, for some personal photographs. In that trip I used an Olympus OM-1n for Black-White pictures and an Olympus OM-2n for color, with the Kodachrome 64, the best film for color slides. I had the Olympus Zuiko lenses 21/3.5, 35/2 and 100/2.8 and the tele Tokina 200/3.5. Instead of scanning the slides, I photographed them with the digital Olympus E-M1 II and the very efficient Zuiko Macro 30mm F3.5. It was necessary to adjust the pictures (and cleaning them from dust and fungus) with ACDSee, but the photos, themselves, were not modified.
