In this photograph, taken during the tranquil blue hour in St. Petersburg, Russia, the imposing griffons of Bank Bridge come to life. Their formidable wings spread wide, they stand watch over the Griboedov Canal. In the distance, the illuminated domes of the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood create a mesmerizing contrast. Overhead, a web of power and telephone wires weaves through the urban landscape. It's a moment that captures the city's unique blend of history and modernity. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
