Wandering Camera

Album sixteen
(Translated by D. Mosesian)

We've got news - Sergei Tikhomirov offered to supply gradually additional comments, more academic in character than mine, to some of the pictures .
Various historic facts, dates, names.
Myself, and you too, perhaps, will correct him from time to time. :)
To look at the comments press the button "xref.gif (538 bytes)" near the picture.
Some additional work for me though, but ..

OK. The weather is fine today :-)


a03_19.jpg (35162 bytes) Vladimirskii Cathedral near the subway station "Vladimirskaia".

Not far from Tuchkov bridge there is another Vladimirskii Cathedral (album six).
On the map it's called prince-Vladimirskii, although on the sign on it it's not mentioned
Resemblance is not limited to the title. Even the style of towers is very similar.

a11_20.jpg (19240 bytes) On the border of light and darkness...

A wall of Peter and Paul fortress.

A little farther along the wall a few people are taking the sun under rather strong wind and air temperature of +2 C. I didn't take the picture to save their nerves and my camera :)

Ice motion .. The couples, crowded on the Palace bridge, are watching the ice cakes floating slowly towards the Gulf. a11_24.jpg (24906 bytes)
a11_28.jpg (24402 bytes) They say that a few years ago something was installed up the river to brake the ice. Since then there is no real ice motion anymore, with large banking ice cakes..
It looks like the girl has decided to join the ice :) a11_29.jpg (23951 bytes)

Good luck!
