The Best of 100 Years Today, Post-Revolution Russia in Your Photos

On Nov. 7, 2017, Russia marked the centenary of the 1917 October Revolution. Far from the days of Bolshevik uprising and Lenin’s formation of a new Soviet government, today's Russia presents a strikingly different picture, with a changing story still being written and told by the residents of this country. 

To capture a glimpse of everyday life in Russia, we asked our readers to show us your day on Nov. 7 — a century after the revolution. Here's a selection of your stories so far.
