And now for some more “non football during Euro 2012”-activities. At the fens to Ivan Franko Park you can find translated poetry by contemporary Polish and Ukrainian poets. I would say that Yuri Andrukhovych is among the most famous, and especially for an international audience. Among other Ukrainian names you can find Katerina Babkina and Andrei Bondar.

I am afraid that I am no good in Polish poetry, and can’t say mych about the names. But many of the pieces are very intrigues. So, to tell the truth, there are some small tasty pieces in the Euro 2012 pie.

For more info.

I like slowness. The time it take from trigger the camera shutter to the developing the film and to looking at the scans. That is why we only now, goes from April to May. This serie includes a visit to the wonderful Zhovkva and of course, Vynnynky.

And as always, thanks for the developing and scans Фотовернісаж. You are the best!

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.
