Entry with statues of Lenin, Marx and Engels
10-NOV-2012

Entry with statues of Lenin, Marx and Engels

According to the park's website, about the entrance: "When facing it, the main entrance bears the image of a monumental classicist building. Looking behind it, though, it resembles a 12-meter-high, under-propped communistic scenery, a perfect introduction into the nature of dictatorship."

What a grandiose, airy symmetry to start with, V

I like the symmetry of the entrance with the brickwork and statutes. And I like being able to see through into the park itself. V.

I love the sense of isolation you've captured with this outstanding image. It looks like something trapped in time. V.
