Photographer's Note

I loaded this photo few days ago but for some reason it wasn't visible on TE so here goes again.
From our hotel room in the suburbs of Moscow we could see this tower. We went to investigate and discovered the ruins of an ancient monastery and perimeter wall. Internet research indicated that it is Simonov monastery, perhaps the oldest, and once the richest in Moscow. Restoration has started but there is a long way to go. Half of the complex was demolished in the 1930s to make way for a soccer field.
I wasn't allowed inside for a look because I was wearing shorts (it was 32 degrees!)

I know that this image needs work to straighten it but it was processed on my tablet using PS Touch which has limited capabilities.
