On Windows of Rural Russia
From Irkutsk in the south of Russia where average temperatures through the year are below 0°C. These casings are gianormous, very ornamental and usually have shutters which is unusual for Central Russian windows. The windows are usually high, even the ground floor windows are placed above an average person's height. They look almost unfamiliar to me.

From Krasnoyarsk in the south. Again, a totally distinct, very geometric, stylized, art deco feel about these casings. In Krasnoyarsk windows are much lower than in Irkutsk, sometimes you have to kneel to photograph a window. All shades of blue seem to prevail
Myshkin is a tiny town in western Russia. These are its windows:
