I just came across some Moscow fog shots by Ilya Varlamov and I sincerely believe they are worth posting. Maybe they don't show some actual progression, but they are definately worth giving a look and have some artistic glimpse.









And the last one, my absolutely favourite shot:

It was made by Dmitry Chistoprudov but this shot definately suits this set perfectly.

What short time exactly do you think it is going to be old-fashioned in?

A lot of recently built skyscrapers will seem old-fashioned after a decade of time. That's the sad truth behind trends in contemporary life, where architecture becomes commodified and is no longer a subject of a lasting artistic interest.

Ten years ago, this area was a "blind spot" of the city and not "strategic" at all. I remember an alternative club, run-down industrial area and barking wild dogs.

Anyway, the Moskva-river has a lot of slopes, so you could find many such "strategically-looking" (in middle-age terms) places in Moscow. If it will become the new centre, the future will show. But it doesn't depend on middle-age factors.

I love the pic with the photographer on the roof btw.

I think it's because it's missing the Russia Tower: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=396624
