Yesterday it rained all day

12 July 08

So we went to the Kremlin Armoury and looked at a lot of very grand and shiny things. Tiny portrait miniatures set in wine goblets, keepsake boxes carved from ivory, silver pocket watches, beautiful fabric fans, jewelled hat pins, antique lace fans, costumes of old Emperors and Empresses and gigantic royal carriages. Needless to say I liked it a lot! Irritatingly, photography wasn't allowed (I seethe whenever I go to a museum that enforces that rule) but there are some photos on flickr that you can have a look at. Their website is also fairly decent, and shows some of the exhibits.

I love the colors you get even on an overcast day. What kind of camera/film do you use?

I love those paper windmills. your decription sounds so great you make me wish i’d someday go there too! and the colored umbrellas match the flowers :)
didn’t the people in the metro mind of you taking pics? i tried it once but they stared at me so badly i gave up the idea after two totally random shots.

There’s few things I dislike more passionately than the “no photography allowed” rule whenever I visit a museum or exposition. Glad to see I’m not the only one!
Anyway, I’ve been loving your Moscow trip and your photography, keep sharing!
