My photo-impressions from Moscow in November November 12, 2009

I am back from a short Moscow trip with some images which I took for you.

The quality of images is not that good, but I think you will get an impression of how it is like in Moscow in November – cold, pretty nasty and windy, but still enjoyable :).

It was getting dark rather early, and I was mostly outside during late afternoon, therefore most of the images look like taken at night. In fact it was a daytime (from 3 till 6 p.m.).

LOVE; axinia

    Great pics.. thanks for sharing axinia! 🙂

  4. The pictures are lovely! 🙂 The architecture looks cool, but the weather seems to give the place a cold and unhappy look at this time of the year 😐

    What’s Stalin’s communist relic (the red star) still doing at the top of the Kremlin 😕

    • axinia Says:

      There is nothing wrong with the stars, it’s a part of the history and has never been associated with Stalin.
      It is beautiful as it is and I never heard anybody willing to replace it with any thing else.

      • Architecturally and aesthetically, the lit star does look beautiful and I guess it’s a good thing to leave it there 🙂

        But I thought it was Stalin who replaced the old relics of the feudal Tsarist regime in the Kremlin with symbols of the Soviet state 😐

        I think the powers that be have left the star untouched for reasons more than architecture and aesthetics, though 😉 Perhaps, it serves as a subtle reminder to the Russian people about the power structure at present and the direction Russia is going to take in the future 😐

        • axinia Says:

          may be…but the land is full of such reminders, my fried! You cannot remover everything, right? Most of the arcitecture was done at soviet time, so shall they destroy everything?

          • Certainly not! 🙂 That would mean committing the same mistakes as the ones that were replaced 😐

            But as the saying goes, “The more things seem to change, the more they remain the same.” 😉

    Love the variety and seeing these images through your eyes – a place I will not get to go and now you’ve delivered a genuine sense of it – powerful and authentic capture in mage to me.

    Hey Axinia, Lovely pictures as ever – I do not know if the country is as beautiful or if photography enhances the beauty.

    Take Care.

    P.S.: MY studies are keeping me away from internet – well, at least focussed on facebook. Hoping to spend more time henceforth.
