This happens only four times a year...
Today the Spring started at our Wandering Camera! :-)
And a pleasant news coincided with this great event - the
site Wandering Camera has won the nomination "Personal" from the organization ROCIT, in frame of a
yearly competition :
The ducks have thawed out and now looking for
something to. eat
The duck in the center of the frame was dipping half of its beak in the water and then
accelerated, paddling quickly with its paws ;)
As you've probably guessed looking at the title, we'll
start our spring walks from the environs of the Anichkov Palace and Aleksandrinskii
Rossi street (it was called Theater street before), at its
and - Aleksandrinskii Theater
Someone has accused me that I don't make interesting photos
of statues. Well, there is something in it - I am somehow suspicious of them. :)
The theater again. The theater and most of the surrounding
buildings were built by Karl Rossi
This is the building on the right side of the previous
frame. They told me it belonged to architect Basin.
Very springtime frame. Almost as springtime as the ducks ;)
One of the pavilions of Anichkov Palace
This and the three following frames are made in the little
park by the Anichkov palace..
Snowmen don't know yet that the cunning rays of the spring
sun are creeping from behind.
A vase near one of the pavilions of Anichkov palace
In the background - monument to Catherine II. Very
ill-placed monument that spoiled all the plans of Rossi. Before there was an unobstructed
view from Nevskii prospect on the theater and Theater square, but now the monument and the
little park around it are blocking it completely ;(
THeater of Comedy and Eliseevskii store.
Springtime sign :)
I hope we are going to have more sun now and the pictures will be more
By the way, I've made a heroic effort (was going to for last 3 years) and now you can
