Photographer's Note

London has Oxford Street, Paris has the Champs Elysee, New York has Fifth Avenue - and St. Petersburg has Nevsky Prospekt. The 4 km long avenue where pavements are a little wider, where shops are as expensive as elswhere in the world, where the women are chic and the cafes have tables outside for tourists to take in the "typical" Russian atmosphere. It is also the place where pickpockets operate in hundreds and con-men will try to take tourists for an extra dollar. It is not everything, but it is an important part of modern St. Petersburg - and definitely has its own charm.
I cropped and resized for the web - that's all.
