The Past in the Present

March 16

“One day my friends and I went on a trip to the Ivangorod fortress, which is located on the border with Estonia,” says Your Shot contributor Anastasiia Shikina.

“I was walking [some] distance from the fortress, and these empty churches drew my attention. The general impression from this place is unforgettable—traces of past centuries in the present.

“From time to time I use materials [I find] nearby, such as paper or glass, to get more interesting pictures. In this case, I [had] found a piece of broken bottle. It was a rainy day, so there were a lot of raindrops on the glass. I held the glass close to my camera lens and got this shot.”
