Photographer's Note

After a long time, we are once again in Russia. And the picture we have symbols of Soviet Russia. The main frame is a luxurious motiven Soviet prestige car Chaika GAZ 13 M. The car was produced between 1959 - 1981, a car powered eight-cylinder power of 144 kW. The car weighed 2100 kg and reached a speed of 160 km / h. The image was taken in St. Petersburg Strelka on the peninsula, which lies on the eastern edge of the island Vasiljevskij. On the right side of the picture you can see where it all happened - the Winter Palace. It is just across the river Neva.
