Dusk At Iversky Gate Captures The Mysterious Russian Soul

Dusk is evenings darkest moment before the night sweeps over, revealing a blackness marred by stars they say have met an eternal sleep; they even say our eyes see those near death. The life of a star is not the ‘star’ in this post. My mood has been taken by melancholy, inflicted by dusk that has already swept over the sky I look at night, after night. Such a mood inspired me to show you a different image of Russia. When you google images of Russia, the photography of the land, symbols, landmarks etc- have a different sort of beauty that sort of needs ‘dusting off’- a closer look, a different look more so.

The beauty is not something you might expect. This particular image taken under one of the archways of Iversky gate (aka resurrection/ Iberian gate), over looking St. Basil’s cathedral has depth, strength and compassion, three things they say are found in this mysterious Russian soul or dushá. I won’t go further, I’m leaving this image of Iversky gate taken at dusk up to your interpretations. And if this post has felt too eerie, scroll down because I have included some pics of this gate in the daylight  and with lights on it to.. un creep you out. Hopefully.
