    Great pix! Thanks for sharing them. I hope to get to Russia, St Petersberg. I want to see the re-built amber room. And I love the pix of McDonalds signs in diff languages.

    Wow, Andree, Russia and Dubai in just ten days, you don't waste your time.
    I think maybe my favourites here will especially be the church and the lone camel.
    And the dancer, by the way, and also ... .-)
    Nice series !

    WOW! Fantastic photos, especially the Russian ones (in my opinion, anyway). I am envious. ;-)

    That's an unusual view of St. Basil's, but it really works well.

    How was Russian for traveling in? Any problems? Is it pleasant, or difficult for a tourist on their own? (Or were you on a tour?)

    Hi Oxy :thx, and yes, I love to see that sign in difference language

    Hi Steen: Yes, the trip was very short T___T I wish i can spend more time at Russia hahahaa. Can't do much about it, cause i only have 10 days of holday
    As for Dubai, I don't think I will go back to Dubai soon. Not at least for 3-4 years. There are so many new building on construction (including Universal Studio, which should be completed on 2010)


    Hi Mwalker : yes, It's SB 900, bouncing to the sealing, set the flash into Slow/rear mode

    Hi Lisa : thx Yes, i was trying to capture st. basil at difference angle
    IMHO, it's really hard to travel in Russia alone (without using a local travel agent) I was on Tour, so they already arranged everything. Russian do not speak english... I having a lot of problems when I want to buy something or to ask something with local people >_<
    hard hardddd

    Hi Jorgen : thx youuu

    Andree,
    This is a fantastic series. My favorites are St. Basil and the dance photo.
