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.

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!
