russia looks harsh and unfeeling. perhaps that's why their people are so angry all the time.
I agree with Anne Marie, I always think pictures from there feel cold. But I find some of their architecture amazing. A guy I dated once is from Russia, and left recently became of the conditions for the gay community. We still talk....hos accent makes me purr.
Some lovely photos there Jon. I went to Russia (the Urals) in 2008 for my only visit (a business trip). I found the people unexpectedly rather welcoming but the country not so. I can't quite figure that out. I was incredibly relieved to leave 72 hours after arriving having tried to spend my 7 hour layover in Moscow taking in the sights but instead getting terribly lost on their metro system for about 3 hours! There are better places to visit I recall telling myself!
I've been enamored with Russia for so long! Regretfully, I had to scratch it from my bucket list a few years ago ... so I appreciate you allowing me to enjoy it via cyber space. My favorites are #3 and "Winter, St. Petersburg."
The landscape is almost identical to what we have here in the Anchorage and MatSu Valley area so feels very familiar to me. The only thing missing are the mountains we are surrounded by. I am enchanted by the very last photo. It looks like something out of a fairy tale. I didn't realize there were canals in St. Petersburg - do people travel around by boat as they do in Venice?
Woops almost missed this, glad I didn't. The pictures are beautiful.
A pretty place, I am not sure I would want to visit.
