Peter and Paul Fortress

f22; ISO 400; 1/2000sec

An iconic landmark on the St. Petersburg skyline, the Peter and Paul Fortress harks back to the early sixteenth century.  In this image I attempted to recapture the building’s historical nature with some grain and a slight blue colour cast.

Kazan Cathedral

In July, my family and I spent a few days in St. Petersburg, Russia.  This is the Kazan Cathedral, a functional Russian Orthodox Church styled after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. I tried to go for a unique angle and was lucky enough to catch a plane in the background; an interesting juxtaposition of historical architecture and modern technology!

Light Through the Window

While photographing a political event, I was distracted by the light coming in through the window and the shadows it created.

Shadows in the night

This was shot from the roof of an apartment building in Johannesburg, shortly after sunset.  The high-contrast, textured shadows created by a nearby street-light caught my eye, leading to a low-key black and white image.  I added the clean diagonal line in the top left (actually the trail from a car’s headlights) as a juxtaposition against the gritty shadows.
