Photo of the Week: Russian Architect in Miniature



Another week, another photo to highlight.


This week’s photo shows a miniaturized version of a Russian-style copula. A copula is a small dome, on a drum on top of a larger dome, adorning a roof or ceiling. This model was created by Burlington resident John Lyons who has been making them for over a decade. He also likes to build birdhouses and Chinese ornaments.


The photo was sent in by Greg Smith, who is good friends with John.


Thanks for the photo, Greg!

We’d like to see your photos. They could be of something you see around town, the weather outside your own door or even photos of your family members and pets. Whatever you think is interesting and would like to share.

Email your photos to with the subject line “Photo of the Week.”
