Palace Square is main square of Saint-Petersburg. You could see buildings with really amazing architecture.
Palace Square is considered to be the city’s main square and serves as an excellent example of how different architectural styles can be combined in a most elaborate and aesthetically pleasing way. On the northern side of the square stands the picturesque Baroque Winter Palace (built in 1754-62).
Across the square, on the southern side, stands the classical yellow-and-white building of the former Imperial Army General Staff (built between 1819 and 1829 by the Italian architect Carlo Rossi). The building encircles the Southern side of the square and combines a central arch, designed as a Triumphal Arch after the ancient architecture of the Classical World, through which you can reach Nevsky Prospekt.
On the eastern side the building of the former Royal Guards’ General Staff tastefully closes the panorama of Palace Square, while on the West the square borders with the Admiralty and the Admiralty Garden. With the guilded spire of the Admiralty and the dome of St Isaac’s clearly seen from here, the view westwards across the stone-clad expanse of Palace Square is quite breathtaking. In the middle of the square the Alexander Column creates an important focal point for this great architectural ensemble.
We gave the Lomo'Instant Square to Cécile aka La Fille Renne who shot really nice portraits with our newest instant camera, proving once again that the square format is perfect for photographic portraiture.

Loretta Ramos is a TV show producer, recently known for Hannibal, American Gods, and Mockingbird Lane. Not quite as dark are her personal photographs, she likes to take with the Diana F+. We couldn't wait to see what she thinks of our brand new Diana Instant Square and sent her a prototype to test.
First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
Even today, the West is still hung up and mystified with Russia's Soviet past. The Eurasian country is also one of the most talked about in terms of international politics, and more often than not being misrepresented by Western media. This was Russian daily life.
You might wonder why the world has gone green for today. Every 17th of March, one would find people wearing shamrocks, attending cèilidhean, marching parades, drinking the best Irish beer and whiskey in the area. No doubt, today is Saint Patrick's Day.
