Night Photography in St. Petersburg, Russia

Downtown Houston from Hobby Center parking garage
This cruise MA and I are going on in August takes us to St. Petersburg, Russia. This will be the first time our cruise ship will stay docked over night at a port.  The usual protocol is for the ship to arrive early in the morning, passengers depart for a tour or walk-off and we're back on by 4pm and the ship departs for another port.  This cruise we'll stay overnight at St. Petersburg, Russia.  I want to take advantage of this overnight stay and get some night shots of the "white nights" this city is know for.  What complicates matters is the lack of a Russian visa.  Russia requires a visa if you're not with a "licensed tour operator."  So I've been searching for such a guide and there are not many of them.  I may just have to hire one of the licensed guides myself if I am going to do this.    I'll let you know how this turns out.  Here's an example of some night photography in downtown Houston.
