In Memory of a trip to Moscow

Moscow, the ancient and current seat of the Russian people.  A City full of history, culture, and art.  The people, the food, and even the Metro are full of interesting things… When I was there in September 2009, I took many pictures with my Nikon Coolpix P80.  Here are a few
One of the most amazing sights in my life, Turning a corner, and as we are about to cross the bridge, I see this.  about 7am Moscow time:
