Standing in red by joseluisrg Standing in red by joseluisrg
A ground perspective of the Moscow State Historical Museum, which is part of the building complex that delimits Moscow's Red Square.

Despite its obvious intense red colour and harsh past, the qualifier "Red" is misinterpreted by most foreigners that associate it as communist or blood related, however the adjective was born from the word "Krasnaya" or beautiful in old Russian which is similar to the word "krasny" or red.

The square is definitely the best spot of Moscow. Its size and its majestic buildings is breathtaking, just as this museum.

Although rare, for me at modern or urban settings, I think sometimes this awe effect is what keeps our zest for life flowing, in other words, it is where life has all the meaning and where our human essence floats out from the depths of oblivion.

Tech details:
- I had a hard time trying to get those blues, it might look false because I added extra tint, contrast and a diagonal tinted gradient.
- Added sharpness to promote textures in the building (bricks and corners)

What a fascinating building. Tsarist architecture has always seemed like such a wonderful blend of both European and Islamic influences due to Russia's unique geographical location.

Indeed, I was going crazy for all the beautiful sceneries Russia had for us.

Travel really changes you.
