St. Petersburg From Above

Recently, photographer Amos Chapple spent some time in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city. He used a small drone to lift his camera high above the cathedrals and fortresses, capturing some amazing aerial photos. Chapple: “There’s a legend in Russia that Saint Petersburg was constructed in the blue heavens and lowered in one piece into the marshland, ‘for how otherwise could a city so beautiful exist in a region so bleak.’” Chapple, has previously showed us Stalin’s Rope Roads, and took us on a trip to Turkmenistan.

Nicholas and Alexandra - The Brooch
"When they first met, he gave her a brooch. She, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, was just 12. He was little more than a boy yet, in one brief moment, the destiny of the last of the Tsars was set."
In 1884, Princess Alix, aged 12, arrived in St. Petersburg for the first time to attend the wedding of her sister, Ella, to Grand Duke Serge, Nicholas’s uncle. The wedding was held in the Winter Palace and Alix watched in awe as a golden coach drawn by white horses carried her sister to the chapel. During the wedding service, she caught the eye of the 16-year-old Nicholas. He would never forget what she was wearing that day—a white muslin dress with roses in her hair. A few days later, at a children’s party, he pressed a small brooch into her hand. Flattered, she accepted at first, but then shyly returned the gift.
