I’ve been in Kazan for six days now and I’ve yet to get an opportunity to really explore the place.
I have been able to get out a little in my few spare moments and capture a handful of beautiful photos. The images above and just below are of the Kul Sharif Mosque in the Kazan Kremlin.
I had around 45 minutes to get from where I’m working to the Kremlin, setup and catch these shots as the sun was setting, before I had to get back to work.
I’d researched the area beforehand and knew where I had to get to for the shots I wanted, but I don’t think I could have timed my arrival there any better if I’d tried. I also managed to do all of this on the only day since I’ve been here with blue skies and bright white clouds.
Planning is extremely important to get a good photo but sometime you have to have a little luck on your side for everything to fall into place.
I’ve been doing a little more research and there’s a couple of places in walking distance that I want to get photos of, it just requires a little planning around my work schedule. One photo I definitely plan on getting needs to be taken at night, so I think that one may happen tomorrow evening after I finish for the day.
