Moscow through the lens of my N86.

Readers of my previous blog might remember my revelation that Nokia’s high-end camera phones — and specifically the N86 — had become good enough to replace my dedicated point-and-shoot while travelling abroad.

And on my trip to Moscow this month my N86 continued to impress. Here are a few samples of what it delivered:

Just another Moscow Metro station...

  1. AC:
    I would have guessed you used a high-end point ‘n’ shoot for those (like my old Fuji S-series camera, which looks like an DSLR but isn’t).

    Awesome colour and detail.


  2. Thanks. That Ministry of Foreign Affairs building was so tall I couldn’t get a shot of it without wires blocking the way, so I made them even more prominent instead.

  3. I think the second photo is not from Moscow… I think that one is from Saint Petersburg, isn’t it?

    Kindly regards… And good photos.
