Photographer's Note

Kazan Cathedral during the evening. Moscow has some beautifull and colorfull buildings and many corrupted policeman.
The story about this picture is that it was my first day in Moscow and I had planned to shoot some pictures with the tripod during the evening. I was shooting around the Red Square and this was the last building I had to shoot. When suddenly a Russian policeman came to me and I had to come with him. I was in big trouble he said. So I followed him to his kamarads and they said I was in big trouble `cause I was spying around the Kremlin with my dSLR and tripod. That was not alowed. They said I had to pay a "fine" of 15000 roubels (aprox. 500), eventually I paid them 100 and I could go. Remember I was alone with six policemen around me and I had to catch my train the next morning to go to Beijing. They were very intimidating
