Wandering Camera

Album eighteen
(Translated by D. Mosesian)


Today we are going to be walking on water :)
On a boat, that I first saw when walking in Peter and Paul fortress.
We will go towards Palace embankment via Winter channel, then down Moika, Krukov channel, up Griboedova channel, Fontanka and again across Neva towards Peter and Paul. Altogether 30 rubles and takes one hour.

It's very windy on the river...

Between rostral columns on your left - building of former Stock Exchange.

Rather unusual frame - we are going under the Blue bridge (the widest bridge in Petersburg, between Mariinski Palace and St. Isaac square) my09_15.jpg (20186 bytes)
my09_18.jpg (38954 bytes) New Holland. Interesting how the color of the water changes because of the reflections of the trees.

Moika is going to the left, Kriukov channel - to the right.

On the left - Kazan cathedral, far ahead you can see the Savior on Blood cathedral. my09_32.jpg (27732 bytes)

That's all. By the way, if anybody has a boat we could make more interesting pictures. Unfortunately when moving with the speed offered by the captain of this boat I did not have time even to look around, not mentioning choosing the right angle for the picture...

There are some additional comments to the previous albums now.
