|Window in Old Lviv|
Ukraine is such an amazing place for photographers -- the sites, the people, the panoramas! Truly beautiful.
I like photographing windows, doors, gates, and passages. Every so often, I'm truly surprised at a good result -- wow! The Carpathian Mountains -- Karpaty -- are really blue in the distance, as so many Ukrainian songs sing.
People are fascinating, too. Ukrainian faces are really beautiful, whether young, old, or in-between. Some faces look as if they stepped out of history, say, the 15-17th c. If from a great distance, I don't ask, just shoot. Closer, I do ask if I can photograph.
And you can join me -- and bring your camera -- this September.
