Church from epoch of Peter I

Church from epoch of Peter I

The church of the Blessed Virgin's Birth in Podmoklovo is one of the most interesting erections of Peter's epoch that is the incarnation of west-European baroque features. A brick church delivered on the high bank of Oka represents a bivaulted rotunda covered by a high dome and accomplished by a light drum. Massive cylindrical volume of the church is surrounded by an opened arcade, connected with it by a system of groined vaults. The figures of 12 apostles and 4 evangelists are set on the axes of the arcade's pylons over the cornice on the high pedestals of the crowning balustrade. church is one of the earliest ones that came out till now from the whole first half of XVIII century rotundas. The author of the project is unknown, but he is the Italian architect Carlo Fontano by some suppositions.

I am currently working with my repeat client from Canada, Annie Budz, who came to Moscow on her vacation again, now with her sister younger Irina to discover more interesting sites in Moscow and its Region during two weeks (10-23 of May). Because of very bad traffic during workdays we as usual go out of the city from Monday to Friday and spend weekends in Moscow city. Annie likes very much Russian church architecture and we are taking a lot of pictures everyday...



Today is my Birthday, May 14th, and I decided due to this event to share one of the Best pictures of this Day on my website (see my news).

Hope you like... Cheers!

Great blessings this new years to you and to all of russia. The experience of the holidays continues to set in motion many questionable traditions. For many in the states it is a difficult time which brings sadness. when an over commericalized atmosphere creates images that are not real for all families. The important issue of christmas is being able to take time out to be grateful for what is in ones life. To pray for a better world where we can seek an understanding of one another. Primarily to assume that we are our brothers keeper, and we have a responsibility to serve those less fortunate than ourselves. I pray that as stewards of the the earth we become more concerned with the caring of the earth, each other, and all sentient beings in the next decade.
As for russia, My husband and I fell in love with her people and her beauty. Just shows you that 70 years of tyranny cannot darken the human spirit. My warmest wishes that the US and Russia can work together to collaborate as equal partners. I know our people can, lets hope our leaders can as well.
blessings!
