Artist's Description

One of my favorite places to photograph is along the Moscow Canal, along the various lanes like Lavrushinskiy you will always find something going on here. One of the world’s most famous art galleries, "Tretyakov Gallery is located here and in the 1800’s a famous Russian painter, Repin came here to paint from the small bridge that crossed the canal. In the small park in which the Lavrushinskiy lane and Luzhkov Pedestrian bridge crosses the canal, was where Pougachev was executed by orders of Peter III, for the revolt he led. During WWII a life size model of the Kremlin was built here to confuse German bombers. There is always something going on here to photograph, a Russian tradition is for newly weds to come to Luzhkov Bridge to place apadlock on the railings to seal their love, as long as the lock remains locked to the bridge, the couple’s love will remain locked. The Tretyakov Gallery has place modern art sculptures along Lavrushinskiy Lane.
