Kanoniersky Island, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Kanonersky Island, one of Saint Petersburg Islands, an old artillery gunpowder depotwas built on the island. It has a post-industrialist favour. Nowadays ships pass near the island through the ship canal to the dam and further. Some docks and piers are working around, a highway is under construction. I went there on a wild photographic tourwith russian friends trying to find signs of decay, and there are many!

Grand entrance to New Holland Island, long fell into neglect, Saint Petersburg, Russia

New Holland Island was created in 1719. After the Russian Revolution its buildings fell into neglect, Here photographed at sunset at about 22h30 hours, still the White Nights period. It has a nostalgic and derelict touch. This grand entrance is not grand anymore, but a stop for tourists boats surfing the channels of Saint Petersburg.
