In the Shadow of Stalins Boots

'In the Shadow of Stalin's Boots'

This is the one photograph I went back to the park for, and certainly wasn't disappointed with the weather. The name of this picture is actually the title of the guidebook for Memento Park, and I felt it was appropriate here.

Nikon D700 ,Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
1/160s f/13.0 at 60.0mm iso200 full exif

Indeed it was worth revisitng the park and photographing the boots again - there are so many scary symbols in this monument! V.
