Midnight in Saint Petersburg - Harry Hulme advises that Caine is looking at, in order of proximity to him, a) the Kazan Cathedral colonnades, b) the parapet of the canal 'bridge' which is really an extensive courtyard and main road (Nevsky Prospekt), c) The Kutuzov statue, d) the high domed entrance to the Singer building (far left), and finally, in the distance on the right, The Church on the Spilled Blood. Everything has been foreshortened by the camera's depth of field setting which has made the background look huge.
