A Snowy Night at the Kiev Opera House

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!

The Eastern Bloc countries always held a certain mystique to me. Since I grew up during the cold war, I’ve thought going anywhere near the USSR would be like a Star Trek redshirt visiting the Klingon capitol. Kiev, of course, by this time is a much friendlier place to visit. It still held a lot of the old imposing Soviet architecture that made you feel like you are always being watched by a government official. When I would set up to take photos, I noticed many a suspicious eye looking in my direction, as if, perhaps, maybe I was a government official posing as a photographer.

It was quite icy and snowy in Kiev that night. I walked up near the opera house and found this shot. The blue lights inside along with the old Soviet car out front gave it all a very cool feeling.

So this house is cheaper than the last one I mentioned by 0,000. I don’t know why, but at least the amount is getting closer to my price range. My range is 7.09 – 4.81

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

My ideal dream house (ok… maybe the winter house in asia… as if) would look something like this. This was originally the home of a master sculptor. At this point in 2002, it was used as a private museum/display space for a large collection of Balinese antiques and sculptures. This sanctuary was nestled within a beautiful hotel built against a cliff overlooking stepped rice fields across and a river valley below. The hotel did not advertise this treasure and I only stumbled on it by chance because I was staying there. I believe the hotel is now "Alila Ubud" (formerly known as The Chedi Ubud). I took a bunch of really nice pictures of this place but lost all the files except for a few like these. Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.
