Photographer's Note

I wanted to try and come away with a different take on this well known view of the Kremlin, especially since I had already snapped a handful of postcard shotswhich Ill eventually post one of, just because its incredibly iconic and quite impressivethe view that is, not my pictures. :)

Once I stepped back from the bridges railing, it didnt take long to realize how this could be achieved with the flow of foot traffic. Thanks to a trusty shutter release and the digital age where you can delete all of the unwanted shots you dont like, I was finally able to catch the right moment of people in rhythmthey were spaced and paced almost perfectly not to obstruct the main features of the background. I must have snapped off about 40 pictures just to get one that I liked. Patience really is a virtue! lol

I thought this was also a good representation of my first impressions of Moscow, fast paced and on-the-go, just like any big city out there. And like the weather, the conditions were always changing. When I first arrived at this spot, it had finished raining a short time before, so there werent too many people out, but that quickly changed when the sun broke through. Lucky timing, on both accounts.

Thanks for taking stopping by.
