In which a fashion event makes for a funky take on central Moscow.
Last week, I was walking from one archive one day in the direction of the state library when noticed that workers were in the progress of installing some sort of installation in the middle of Red Square.
At the time, I only had my baby camera, which promptly died, and my iPod, so I vowed to make an attempt to return in the near-ish future with my better camera and hope for better luck. And indeed, on Tuesday — after my archival day finished — I had a couple hours off before I was meeting people for a trip to the ballet. I rambled down to Red Square. The event, it turned out, was something for Dior. I will say, it makes for pretty awesome pictures.
So I, of course, took lots.
Not in reflection, I also paid my respects to General Zhukov.
It made for a pleasant afternoon walk and a nice use of the hour or so I had free (after I had stopped in a café for a snack.
I don’t spend a lot of time on Red Square and mostly try to avoid the tourist hub of the city, but I must admit, it does take rather nice photos. A lovely place for people watching!
