Goodbye To Fall

I took this photo about a month ago and already it looks outdated and from another season. We have seemed to have kissed fall goodbye. It has turned bitterly cold and yesterday's skies threatened snow. (2011)

Amazing Fall

I have not posted lately because my computer died. It was a bit of an ugly death, but I am working on getting back up to speed. It seems that every time you turn around these days you have to take time to learn new technology and there have been a few meltdowns along the way. Here are some photos I took this fall as the leaves changed. It's been truly a glorious season for color!

Another Favorite

Kyiv is a big city. People are moving constantly and if you don't watch it, you will eventually run into someone or they will run into you. I took this photo with my point and shoot and was a bit miffed that this guy just walked into the photo. Then I eventually realized it made the photo more interesting. Now I am not so concerned about people walking into the shots I'm taking because this is pretty much what life really looks like.

Sponge Bob traveled to Kyiv for a little walk down Kreshatik.

Kreshatik



Last weekend there was a marathon and athletes ran up and down Kreshatik. Back and forth. Tired and hot. You can see the Tymoshenko protesters lined up on the sidewalk on the far side of the street.

Fall

Fall has definitely arrived in Kyiv. We are busy each day trying to squeeze every last bit of the good weather out of the end of summer. It's really a beautiful season here and we are having gorgeous weather. (2011)

End Of Summer

Summer weather has changed and the end is coming. It is cooler out. The sky in this photo gives this away.

People

It's hard for me to get good photos of people I don't know on the street. I feel obnoxious getting in their face with a camera to take a photo and in the past this has freaked some people out so I try to do it without them seeing me. Bear with me. I am working on getting better at this.
