St. Basil's Interior Gallery

St. Basil's Interior Gallery

With all the majesty of its external appearance, the cathedral is quite small within. Regrettably, the spectacular interior of St. Basil's Cathedral was badly damaged during its long history by numerous fires and wars. On this picture you can see the interior of gallery (one of corridors which make a circle around the central tower and bind all chapels together) between the Chapels of the Intercession of the Virgin (main, central tower, entrance gates on the left wall) and Saints Cyprian and Justina (entrance gates on the right wall). The walls of the cozy corridor were covered with delicate floral designs at late 17th century, and restored by Briagin in 1930s.

I took this picture in 2005 with my first digital camera Olympus C5060WZ using extra wide angle conversion lenses by Raynox which I bought before to make special pictures indoors. I was very disappointed by the quality of its conversion, how it worked (huge perspective distortion and blur on the edges of pictures. So, after this experiment I didn't used this lenses.. pity about the money I spent on it... but life is life... I tried to correct a little bit here the perspective distortion, sharpeness and, of course levels. I like very much old chandeliers here, hope you too. Enjoy!

My wife and I had the very good fortune to hire Arthur as our guide and driver during our visit to Moscow in September 2013. He has and excellent command of English, knows a
great deal about the history of Russia both past and present.
He visited all the sights we wanted to see and interesting ones along the way that enhanced our trip. His driving skills are made us feel safe and secure. Arthur is also an excellent photographer who
never rushed us when we wanted to take "one more shot", and provided us with many many photos he took along the way. He was on time,
didn't watch the clock, and our tours were always longer than the time we agreed upon. I would unhesitatingly recommend him for any visits to Moscow and the surrounding areas that you plan to take.
