An evening in St. Petersburg – December 2013
This is a small series of photos taken over a few hours of walking through St. Petersburg last month. This was the only free evening I had, and for some reason a kind of gloomy, weird and slightly unsettling photos resulted from it. I don’t think it’s representative of the city – just a very particular look at it. I’ll be back there in May, probably with different photographic results 🙂
Church of the Saviour on Blood. I love this church (even though it’s considered garish by St. Peterburg’s tasteful standards), but whatever angle I tried gave nothing but hackneyed results. I ended up taking the photo through a semi-transparent plastic awning on a nearby booth, and later applying an invert/solarize curve in post-processing. I’m not totally convinced I like this image, but at least it’s not hackneyed (I think). I do like the slightly drowned look.
That’s it, see you next time!
