My Pictures 3: Private

This is a picture of Lyuda (the diminutive for Lyudmyla) made in pencil in 1983.

This is a hand-made birthday card made for her.

Car Shots

I had more than a dozen pictures to choose shot from the moving car. Almost all were blurred. The long low-light exposure time and the car motion made it quite diffcult.

My Pictures 2

This is a watercolours picture of an embankment along the Dnepr in Kremenechuk. A lot of it comes from my memory, but one photograph of 1952 has also provided elements for the background. It was only seven years after the WW2 and quite a short time to clear the ruins and build something. As kids, we used to play in the ruins and it was so exciting.
