Sergey Larenkov Photos

I froze when I came across this photo of Leningrad.  It's heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time.  This is an infusion of old and new...what tragically was and what thankfully is.  Truly amazing work by Sergey Larenkov.

  1. Very nice, I had to look at it a minute to realize the mashup of the 2 pictures. (Yeah, I just said mashup, I can't believe it either) It is a fantastic picture, I love it. Now I have to find a reason to go to St. Petersburg next time I'm in Russia. If I get to go I have a list of places I want to go see for sure.

    And how is Tracey doing on the books? Wondering where she is and what her reaction has been...
