Saint Petersburg in a couple of days

st petersburg in the rain

This post like me previous post is quite lengthy (apologies for all the images and a lack of words).  Following on from my previous post on Moscow, I again try to share a little about the amazing city of Saint Petersburg in Russia.  This city, like Moscow is quite beautiful with some amazing history.  Unfortunately during the time I was there I only had a few hours of sunshine so had to walk quite a few kilometers in one day to capture some of the city.  I ventured to the most popular sites and then tried to find a few local sites and markets that were a little off the beaten track.

The images here again try to capture what I saw in the couple of days I was there.  They were captured with the great little travel camera - the Olympus OM-D E-M5 with the Olympus 12mm lens or the Voigtlander 17.5mm lens mounted at most times.  I couple of other lenses were used at times, but most of the time I did not have the need to continually change lenses.  All images are the copyright of the Footless Fish.  If you would like to use any of the images on this site please contact me.
