Going along Nevsky prospect, through Palace Bridge,
and further along
Kasansky Cathedral. By the way, that shiny thing sticking out on the right
side is not a parking meter (as a some people might think) but a donation basket :)
of Nevsky Prospect. Admiralty from afar ('under construction'). Not a real fun to shoot
photos standing in the middle of Nevsky Prospect even if it's a green light. So let's move
Zimny (Winter Palace), Palace Square. Horses, equipages... Just Catherine
The Great is missing to have a look on all these :)
The fountain near Winter Palace. Because of very short exposition and good
lightness, the water drops seem to be poised in the air.
The views from Palace Bridge on Troitsky Street. Gauze in the background
is real (the machine cleaning the supports of the bridge has nothing to do with it)
The view to Lieutenant Schmidt Bridge. A streetcar still managed to get in
the shot. Oh, well, fiat if so!
The rostral column. That was such a fetcher to asphalt the right side of
the picture in Adobe Photoshop. But let's not disguise history.
We are at University Front. Admirality and St. Isaac Cathedral are right
across Neva river.
The palace Bridge from another side..
The sphinx on University Front. That one which flourishes with its paw on
the TV commercial of some sort of beer ;-)
Panorama of Neva river. And another view on the sphinx from unusual
Lieutenant Schmidt Front. Anchor tows and ships...
What a cute picture could it be for an 'Under
Construction' page! :-)
Harbour and Sea Port. Sunset..
'Narodovoletz' submarine (from 'Liberator')
... and its last dock. Hard to believe from first view that it is in the
Surrealistic landscape. But in reality, just a refuse dump in the rays of
the evening sun.
Don't even know what this building on Korablestroiteley Street
(Shipbuilders Street) is, but it's nice. As somebody suggests me around here, it might be
a water-tower. But why are there so many windows then?
Finsky Bay (Finnish Bay) abaft Pribaltiskya Hotel.
Uh, real anti-ship battery :-) and just a monument of
Kirov battle cruiser as a by-job.
Thank you for exploring St.-Petersburg with us and till next time !
