moscow church

10th April 2004 permanent link

A Russian friend of Maria’s has her birthday this weekend. We thought she might like some pictures of the Rodina, so I spent a couple of happy hours in Photoshop scanning and dust-spotting pictures from our visit to Moscow a couple of years ago. I particularly like the colours in this one, of a small church just off Red Square.

Moscow church

The sky really was that strange grey-pink colour – Moscow was suffering from bad smog that summer, caused by forest fires in the surrounding countryside.
