Photographer's Note

Today there was a rally in Moscow to commemorate the October Revolution. It was really something to witness (and photograph from my hotel balcony), especially for a guy from Jacksonville, Florida, USA on his first trip to Russia - like a time machine to 1952, 1962, 1972, 1982!

Some additional information (source: SOS International)

"The October Revolution march, organised by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF), commemorates the expulsion of the provisional government following the earlier ousting of Tsar Nicholas ll in March 1917, which subsequently led to the Russian Civil War and the eventual creation of the Soviet Union in 1922. The anniversary of the October Revolution was previously an important annual celebration, and while the KPRF continues to enjoy the support of some groups – particularly pensioners – its significance has rescinded in recent years."
