Thank you for the interesting question. My experience of the Russian people has been a very positive one and the places I’ve seen were fascinating to visit. Would be nice to see more. I only spent a few days there in 2001 and beside that I’m pretty hopeless at being an enthusiastic tourist. For some reason I didn’t have my usual camera with me despite thinking it was a very photogenic place. I was instead using a small video camera (not the best quality by any means) to capture some of the things I saw in Moscow and Saint Petersburg (mostly in transit or in venues, such is the life of a touring musician). I made a composite of these clips and since you’re asking I thought I’d dig it out to show you. It’s nothing special but if I’d had a stills camera with me I think I would have gotten some nice images. I’m sure you’ll recognise one or two locations.
