Chizzy and I just got back from a few days in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Mostly just a photblog here. If you want brutally long commentary, check out the special edition podcast Chizzy and I recorded about our visit.
“Our Saviour on-the-Spilt-Blood”. A mouthful of a name, but a very cool looking structure.
It got dark out at night.
Alexander Nevsky Monastery
Heading out towards the monks. They were selling bread. People were waiting in long lines for it. Seems like they would have had enough of that…
Odd background for a photo.
Out and around
The hotel we stayed at.
A view down Nevky Prospect
Along a canal.
Palace Square. I guess this obelisk is the highest going. And it isn’t even anchored down. Just heavy as hell.
The Kazan Cathedral
I’m trying to tell you every car was dirty.
I’m just saying.
A hoity café in a very cool book store. Looking out at the Kazan Cathedral.
At attempt to capture a bustling street.
Your standard bus stop in St. Petersburg. Find the sign.
Even if you could spot this, would it help getting to your destination? Maybe… maybe.
The Spongebob one was the only one we appreciated.
The back of the Hermitage and beyond. Not too shabby.
A full-on shopping mall. Somehow we never made it inside. Amazing.
Sometimes you’d just rather not see signs of home.
Wine served in wooden bowls. How about that?
Out towards Peter and Paul Fortress
Trip out to Pushkin
This abandon area seemed like a good map for a first person shooter game.
If this bridge wasn’t made of marble I would have taken it home.
I guess a poem has been written about this sad little milkmaid.
The Palace. Not real gold anymore.
