One minute sitting in a boat trying to catch a couple of fish among the reeds and water lilies off the small islands in the lake. Next minute a hail storm comes rushing over the tree tops, crashing down on the leaves and then on the lake with a thunderous roar, autumn ambush tactics. We raced for the shelter of the big trees on dry land, but the hail curtain drew nearer meter by meter and caught up with the back end of the boat long before we reached safety. It was a wet summer that year.

Skylight well in the casemates under Kronborg Castle. Only place with any real light in these dark, damp dungeons, where soldiers lived during siege or bombardment.

Narvskaya subway station on Ploshchad Stachek (Square of the Strikes) in Saint Petersburg. The hammer and sickle symbols on the walls cover ventilation shafts. When exiting the station you see the huge, green triumphal arch commemorating the crushing victory over Napoleon Bonaparte's army of 680,000 soldiers, which invaded Russia in 1812. The name Square of the Strikes alludes to the revolution of 1905, when a protest march headed for the Winter Palace started under the arch. The march ended in what is known as Bloody Sunday, when an estimated 1000 unarmed protesters were shot and killed by the Imperial Guard of tsar Nicholas II. After the massacre strikes erupted all over the country.

Avtovo was one of the first subway stations to open in Saint Petersburg, built in 1955 on the city's first metro line. The columns are covered with ornamented glass, the walls with white marble.
