Photographer's Note

I came back yesterday evening from a business trip in Russia. What an amazing country!
A trip full of events and emotions:
Monday: car accident followed by 2 hours paperwork and negotiation with the militia
Tuesday: liquid business lunch ie a vodka round before each of the 5 dishes
Wednesday: surprise face to face with the russian police special forces with black hoods in the factory of my client. They rushed in the factory and lined up all the staff, hands in the air, in order to find any illegal immigrant. Unfortunately, no photo of that as my priority was my safety rather than having a unique picture on TE gallery!
Back to more quiet moments, this is the so famous St Basil's cathedral on the Red Square on a clear sky of a very wet sunday.
During the soviet times, the church was closed and the bells confiscated. Religious services started again in 1991, but only on important days.
