Click to preview St Petersburg photo book

It is impossible to overstate the significance of St Petersburg in world history. As the erstwhile capital of all Russia, and the site of Tsar Alexander's assassination, it has risen and fallen in political favour over the centuries. Yet despite the tragedies to which it has played host, the Baroque heart of this august city beats with an unstoppable pride and dignity.

Hi Dave and thanks for the kind comments. I do use a tripod when absolutely necessary, but I'm a great believer in guerrilla travel photography as most of us don't have the time or budget for expensive shoots. It's something I teach in my Landscape Photography Courses. I'm afraid I can't take the credit for matching up the spreads - that's down to Blurb's fantastic software! St Petersburg is a truly amazing city; having travelled extensively throughout Russia and Siberia, it's still very much a favourite.

Great Pictures. Your double page pictures show great detail and really provide depth. Do you use a tripod so they match up so well? If not, what is your secret. Great book, you should be extremely proud. Can't wait to visit St. Petersburg.
