Kalinka-Stockmann Mall

Kalinka-Stockmann Mall

Looking on my photo-archives, I have decided to show this view from my car on the building of fancy shopping mall in downtown of Moscow city, called Kalinka-Stockmann. I think, that this is good idea to present me as a guide, driver and photographer in Moscow who want to show you something interesting from Russia. This picture I took from my old Russian car LADA 21099 about 1.5 year ago, in summer 2005, it was warm and sunny day (lovely weather, if compare with current weather and season :-)).

"Kalinka-Stockmann" is the chain of markets in Moscow, where the prices are quite expensive (I can say the most expensive grocery stores in Moscow). But in this shop you can find everything from sleepers to olives, wide range of goods which foreigners used to buy on West, but can not be found in another shopping malls; also they have a wide choice of delicacies for the most demanding gourmets. On the red banners is written: "Rasprodazha", which means "Sale" on English, of course, they can do this trick in this overpriced shop.

Here is also very interesting detail - double parking in Moscow is very common. While I was waiting here my client, I had not any choice to park normally nearby sidewalk. This shopping mall is located on the Garden Ring around downtown of Moscow city and even the road has 6 lines each way, usually here is very bad traffic and now you know why.. :-). Policemen come from time to time asking drivers to move the cars at least from the second line, but in 30-60 min will be the same situation..

As a Photographer based in US for long time, I was looking for a very Professional college in Moscow that can provide me the "secret" places or as we know in photography, the Key points of the BEST POV (Point of View) for each photo we can get.

I did my research very well before I travel to Moscow and St. Pet during the month of May 2017.

I have to say that I love Night city view Photography; and after my research, I could not make a better decision than contact Arthur as my Photo tour guide.
Since the very beginning when I get in contact with Arthur, He was very helpful in all matters including the easy way to make deposit payment etc.

The best part came when I arrive to Moscow and after a nice dinner with my wife, He offered to pick me up any where I need to.

I can say that for sure not many people know the city and the best Points Of View of Moscow as Arthur does.

We started the city tour during the "magic hour" at dusk and from there on, EVERY place He showed to us was better and better. I can say that I came back to US, with a LOT of Great Photographs thanks to Arthur.
Those places could not be found (or covered) by my self in the same period of time we did.
There is no way to move in Moscow at night using public transportation and cover the many places we did cover during this GREAT tour with Him.

Arthur, thank you very much for your VERY professional Photo Tour. For sure, in future visits to Moscow, I know I do have a friend and a very professional tour guide for us ...
