When I was in the former Soviet Union, I had the opportunity to visit Zagorsk, a small town outside of Moscow. The beautiful monastery on the hill was, at the time, one of only two tolerated by the Soviet government, and the Russian Orthodox Church made the most of it. Probably one of the most photogenic places I have ever visited.
Originally from New York, I spent many years in Belgium, as well as six months in the former USSR. I'm happily living stateside now, but I've taken many photos along the way and I'd like to share some. On a different note, I'm doing my best to turn the Brit hubcap into a Yank!
