The tower was initially planned to loom over the low-slung historic center of St. Petersburg but an outcry from locals and a warning from UNESCO that the tower's central placement would "damage the image of Russia" led to the original plan being scrapped. In 2011, a parcel of land, around 10 kilometers northwest of St. Petersburg's historic center, was purchased and Gasprom started building the tower in 2015 – St. Petersburg, Russia
The Church of the Ascension, was built on a tsarist estate (Kolomenskoye) near Moscow in 1532 (very much within Moscow’s borders today) to commemorate the birth of the prince that would come to be known as Ivan the Terrible. It may command the attention of the casual visitor today, but was revolutionary at the time: this was the first tent-roofed ecclesiastical structure in stone built in Russia and it had an enormous impact on Orthodox architecture going forward, becoming something akin to a national style. This church, with its one dome, represented an enormous break with the standard church style of having five domes on four pillars. The walls are several meters thick, but the tall ceilings give the cathedral an air of spaciousness - Moscow, Russia

"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure, without a loss of enthusiasm”
