Thank you, Bob, for splicing this, adding the soundtrack and putting it up
Apologies for the jerky quality of the videos, this is because - as Bob mentioned - I was walking when I recorded these, and walking rather fast (even though it doesn’t look like it on the video). I had borrowed someone’s digital camera for a couple of hours the day before I left Russia - my own camera broke only about a week after I got to Pushkin (to my endless chagrin!). I still wanted to somehow capture these images so that I could share them with those who have never been to Pushkin and never saw the AP. I know that still photos tell only half the story…. I purposely recorded this in a manner that the viewer would see through my eyes, as if you were walking along with me.
As Bob mentioned, there are more videos: the rear of the AP, Children’s House, Feodorovsky Gorodok (including Maria's and Anastasia's hospital), Feodorovsky Cathedral, Anna Vyrubova's cottage and Catherine Palace. They will be up soon.
Feel free to post questions and/or comments!
