Just few hundred meters from the mountain village of Pylypets, just behind these pine trees, one can hear water fallingю
That's the waterfall called Shypit (Whisper). One can hear whisper of two lovers from the village that were hiding their love, and died falling from the waterfall.
Also, waterfall is a famous retreat for hippie community. Many people spend here the whole summer or come to visit summer festival.

In 60's, when the first man flew into outer space, the whole world was obsessed with topic of space, aliens and cosmonauts.
They used to build children playgrounds inspired by this topic.
In 2015, when they have finally found water on Mars - these are remains of soviet futurism in Ukraine.

We are helping children in Ukraine.
It all started when my husband and I saw wild dogs taking care of the street children.
A question came: "Does these dogs care more for the children, than people do?"
We moved to Ukraine, run a children's home "Friend's House", help children in need, underage mothers ...

A Local Church

A Local Church by Sundra Tanakoh

Posted on 2012-04-18

I ran across this church last weekend in a very small village about 50 miles south of my town, I can't even remember the name! But I know where it is, I will have to go back when conditions are more favorable, it was beautiful inside also!

Used 11-16mm Tokina, so the distortion was not what I wanted but sometimes you shoot with one lens and do the best you can!

A day of great memories

A day of great memories by Mirjam

Sep 1 is the celebration of school start in Ukraine.
Flowers, festive clothes, songs.

This is the day she's waiting for. Her home is opposite the school. She can sit on her own bench and watch the ceremony on the school yard. Memories of her own school start are back.

Her mother is holding her hand and she is singing and reading a poem. Her hair is beautifully done and she is dressed in a new school uniform. She is only six years, but a day like this - it's like it was yesterday.

In Ukraine, we have too little sealine and too little mountains.
Crimean peninsular used to provide opportunity for both - sea and mountains.
Now, with the change of geopolitical situation in the country, people explore areas of Ukraine that have sea without mountains.
Skadovsk is one of such potential zones for recreation. It has beautiful sunsets. What else one needs?
