Here we go again with the third part of street photography in St. Petersburg during my last trip in February 2020 in this wonderful city of Russia. You can read more about street photography in Russia clicking on links at the end of the article.

Let’s start with street photography in black and white. The first one was taken in Kazan Cathedral in a “sneaky way”, shooting “from the hip” without looking in the viewfinder. This man was thinking during a religious ceremony. I’ve taken several shots from different angles and he didn’t notice me. I like the diagonals and POV in this photo, they help to create drama and dynamism.

I took the following photo on top of a bell tower. As you can see it was really windy and when I saw this scene I quickly grabbed my camera taking this nice and surreal shot. Unfortunately the left side and center of the photo are a bit empty and anonymous.

Another photo taken in a church which is, probably, the most particular of St. Petersburg. I was inside the famous Church of the savior on blood containing about 7500 square meters of mosaics. It is an explosion of details and colors. For my photo I was inspired by this nice little girl that was looking at me in a so kind and innocent pose. I like the contrast between her and the giant column.

Underground, I like how this photo looks, it seems a timeless classic, I like also dualism between foreground and background.
