This March we got summer. Hot and dry and the forest, flowers, trees and people seemed to be a bit in a chock. Through some walks through Brjugovych forest and Dasha areas – and also through the city’s outskirts – we saw how the the city and nature woke up from it’s winter doze. Lviv is so easy to love.
I got a LOMO Smena 8M camera this winter. After a small repair I started to use it. However, it seems thought that my Swedish viking hands are just too strong for Soviet stuff plastic… so I broke it, after just eight shots… But what pictures, eh? I just love the interpretation of the world it does! So I must fix it again. I will NOT give up!
While living in Lviv you are very spoiled with lovely architecture from 15th to 20th century. This implies that it is easy to forget the other buildings. However, I have always been very interested in 19060s, 1970s architecture, so here is some evidence of those “non-seen”-houses.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Kraków. This was my first visit in several years. During my last time I visit to Kraków I also visited Auschwitz. This effected of course my mood, but I also believe Poland has changed… a lot! Walking around in beautiful Kraków you can feel a certain atmosphere that you can’t feel anywhere else in Europe right now, and that is the atmosphere of success. From perhaps being the greyest country in Europe, Poland is today the most prospering one, and you can feel it. I am afraid though, that my pictures below is not completely fair to Kraków. My decision to use b/w film has nothing to do with Kraków, but late autumn. Late autumn is in itself b/w.
I have to say that Poland, Polish and Poles and awakened a curiosity in me, and I will certainly be back soon! With some more language skills.
