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!

If you are on Arthur's website reading this email, then look no further! He is all you will need for a successful trip to Moscow. Transportation, tours, adventures and dining will all be incredible.
Arthur took us to Sergiyev Posad about an hour North of Moscow for an unforgettable tour of the monastery. We guarantee you will be moved and never want to leave.
We also took both a day and night tour of this beautiful city, including the subway. Arthur has his favorite stations, trust him, each one is more beautiful than the next.
Book early, as we waited too late and were only able to spend one day with Arthur, our loss. But with his help, advice and suggestions we were able to travel around the city with ease during the remainder of our visit.
Don't take a chance with someone else and let your time in Moscow be less than perfect. Arthur will be the ideal driver, guide and even photographer.
Be prepared to learn as he is very informative. And finally, if you don't have a sense of humor, Arthur will supply one.
