Teaser Photo in St. Petersburg

Well, I had some things to do last week and missed another post.  I admire all of you dedicated TD bloggers who rarely miss a week in posting a door image; sometimes it gets more difficult as times goes on but I’m here to post something this week.  Computer glitches added to the frustrations of the timely post but that’s really not an excuse.

I’m still rushing to get something posted this week; just got my computer back this evening after taking it in for repairs (long story but not worth writing about in this post – just glad to get the computer back in working order).

This photo was taken at St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia.  It happens to be the largest Russian Orthodox Cathedral according to Wikipedia.  The historical information can be found at this link: St. Issac’s Cathedral

I have other photos of the Cathedral but I have to restore my data back to my computer before I can upload them so it will have to wait for another TD post.  The photo of the huge entry door and gilded columns was taken as I walked in the front of the cathedral but I did not enter it due to time constraints.  In any event, it was a grand door and I’m glad to get a shot of it to share with you.

  1. From experience these past few months I know how frustrating it can be without a computer – one’s digital life is on hold! Beautiful and massive door, Gordon. The colors are saturated, or is it HDR I’m looking at? And … is this a new blog theme/background?

    1. Thanks, Jesh! Live by the computer and die by the no computer! The photo was not HDR. I think many of the door posts can be used for other blog themes when photos start capturing the buildings that the doors are attached to and some of the people that get caught in the moment.
