Staré Selo (Old Village), Lvov Region, Ukraine.

I was taking pictures outside the church in this little village deep in the country as I was spotted by the minister who approached me and was so impressed by my interest in his church. He then asked me if I wanted to see the inside (duh!) and unlocked everything just for me! Wow… It was so special! He let me in almost anywhere inside and didn’t even want to accept my donation (which I left anyway).
This is the very man that was so kind to let me in and show me around.

    Fantastic shots of this church in and out…you’ll have to send him some prints. He was so kind to be so inviting! Lucky you!

  • HI :)) Yes, he was super nice and it was so unexpected and refreshing! When he approached me with his straight face I thought he was going to ask me to leave but he kept saying “Madam is so talented! Madam is so talented!” :) I said how do you know, just because I have a fancy camera doesn’t mean I have any goods in me :)))
    Unfortunately he doesn’t have a computer and said it was OK when I kept begging him for some e-mail address to send pictures to… :(

    geez……u reckon he could have smiled for you Lina…….still, it makes for a moody pic…..
    Nice of him to show you around tho!!
    Extremely noice woik!!

  • Hey Doivid! :)
    This guy didn’t seem like he was used to posing for a picture. He was actually smiling the entire time. I can’t imagine many people come there to take pictures because it’s a small village in the middle of nowhere… I bet it was highlight of his day, or week.. or month :)))
    Glad you like my little journey!
    Thank you!!

    Oh, now this is brilliant. It looks like an illustration (and I mean that in the best possible sense). And I love the “almost symmetry”.

  • Thanks John!!! I’m almost a year late replying though… My apologies :)
