Red Square is quite amazing. Can’t help taking lots of photos (more than usual for me, so that means a few)!

One must stay till dark (late) to get great lighting. Police close the square at 10pm and there is some building activity going on, so view is restricted in parts.

Rym shopping centre is stunning.
