Walking around the Kremlin
• Walk the Kremlin
It was probably one of the most difficult of my shooting. Its approval was gone for months - had to collect many signatures, write a list of the desired points and get a dozen permits. At some point, I had already forgotten about the Kremlin, when he took a shot and was allowed! Thank Tribune Public Chamber for assistance in the negotiation.
The list of desired points strongly cut - was not allowed to shoot from the roofs of buildings, were not allowed to climb the tower, some, but most importantly - the Kremlin wall left. Walk along the Kremlin wall to climb to the inaccessible tower, it was my old dream, and here it is true!
Here is a staircase leads to the Spasskaya Tower. On the tower there are two areas, one under the clock, and the second over.

In one of the walls of the teeth there is such a door. "Not troGGat remains." What remains, and why not troGGat - is not clear. Open the door still can not - prevent the pipe.
Some towers have a telephone communication line.
The walls inside some towers do not differ from the porches of houses in poor areas. This refutes the theory of some scientists, that shit and shitting where dirty. The Kremlin is very clean, but the redneck shit and shit even on ancient walls of the Kremlin. This once again proves my theory that the only crocodile farm will save the country.
Back to the Secret Garden - playground for FSO employees. Still there shooting there.
