My second favorite image of last week from Saint Peters, actually Saint Petersburg, is this wonderful pictue by Alexander Demianchuk for Reuters called “Catching the Rays.” It shows a young man preoccupied by the music of his IPod strolling in the snow past the wall of the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg, Russia, on March 10. He is modly dressed in boots, jeans, and snow jacket apprpriate to the season and he flaunts a classic Russian fur hat meant to deal with the a serious Saint Petersburg winter. He is oblivious to the sunbathing, bikini-clad beauties gathered against the wall. The image brings a smile and a chuckle, and I really love the boots of the snow maidens!
