Autumn in Samara

Samara is a large, industrial city. It’s full of old, Soviet tower blocks, big factories and crumbling streets. Despite this, it somehow manages to be beautiful. If you look hard enough, you can find some extraordinary spots. Besides, Samara has some of the most breathtaking sunsets I’ve ever seen. I’m no photographer, but here’s my attempt at capturing some moments of beauty in and around Samara.

Samara's full of run-down buildings like this, and I think they have a lot of character
