Chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Marshall, who had almost no formal schooling and studied law for only six weeks, nevertheless remains the only judge in American history whose distinction as a statesman derived almost entirely from his judicial career. Following a diplomatic mission to France, he won election to Congress, where he supported President John Adams. Adams appointed him secretary of state and in 1801 chief justice, a position he held until death.

An iconic landmark on the St. Petersburg skyline, the Peter and Paul Fortress harks back to the early sixteenth century. In this image I attempted to recapture the building’s historical nature with some grain and a slight blue colour cast.
