From Russia with Love

Finally, here are my photos from Moscow:

I think some of them are pretty cool. I took these photos on my first trip into downtown Moscow. Unfortunately, the lighting wasn’t good. Luckily my Nikon Coolpix 8800VR held up relatively well. The rain sucked, but it did make the Red Square look all shiny. The mist made Saint Basil’s Cathedral look really spectacular. Buildings like this one freak me out with their age and beauty. They’re all over Moscow, too. I can’t really rationalize a vacation to Moscow, but I can’t rationalize passing up an opportunity to visit either. Somehow, despite the traffic and pollution, Moscow makes me feel good about humanity. Too bad pictures can never really convey this sentiment.
