The Church from Another World

The Church from Another World

The Church Mother's of God Sign in Dubrovitsy, was erected by Italian masters in 1704 according to the order of prince Golitsyn, a teacher of Peter the Great. Among its special features is the golden crown instead of a usual dome. Peter I attended the procedure of new church consecration, but since the very beginning the building in baroque taste was a matter of disputes and disapproval of official Russian Orthodox figures. The church has been closed and opened for several times during its 300 history.

This time the sky time was covered by very grey dark clouds and I could predict that it will be very strong rain, even storm, very soon. So that, I returned back to my car right at the moment when it was started rain. Fortunately, not so heavy as I thought. We had a chat with my client during several minutes and I almost run engine to return back to city after long trip to Moscow Countryside during the day, BUT... it was like miracle, the rain stopped at those moment and sky cleared up a little bit on the side and the church became lighted through the dramatic dark clouds... looking even more impressive then I had seen it before. It was already evening time and we were pretty tired, but I concentrated all my energy and run out from my car toward to the church, holding my new camera in one hand and preparing camera for the new shooting by another hand . I remember, that I was making the new pictures almost non stop moving, because of I was very afraid that this beautiful sun light illumination could be disappeared.. all around this area were very dark skies...

I recently returned from doing an independent adoption in Russia. While in Moscow, I chose to use the services of Arthur Loukianov. I would highly recommend anyone needing services in Moscow to contact Arthur. As a single mom traveling alone the courtesy alone that Arthur showed was very appreciated. My flight did not arrive in Moscow until very late, Arthur was waiting. Arthur was in the lobby waiting for us the next morning and had already spoken with the Embassy doctors so they were expecting us. After the doctors appointment, we drove over to the Embassy to file the papers. Arthur again took us back for our visa interview. The next morning, I had to be at the airport around 5am, once again Arthur was waiting in the lobby for us. Arthur is very polite, very helpful and very talkative. He knows alot about Moscow, is a good driver and genuinely seems to want to help with anything you may need. I was short on time but he managed to squeeze in a short tour of the Kremlin, Red Square and a few other attractions. His fees are very reasonable and I feel he is also very dependable.

Please feel free to email me with any questions!
