IT SPEAKS IN SILENCE TO THE VERY CORE OF YOUR BEING

No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied – it speaks in silence to the very core of your being” (Ansel Adams)

These mountains, my mountains, my Western Ukrainians mountains do speak to the very core of my being.

Geographically playing I dare to divide my country in four parts: eastern, western, northern and southern. I live in the Northern, while my heart usually drifts to the Western  with its rich nature and most gorgeous views ever. No matter how many times I do come back there, I still find something hidden, something captivating and new.  And this time while traveling there I found myself so attracted to these fantastic mountains that I lost my wish to come back even. The emotions caught me and would not like to leave. I was happy and so free as never and anywhere in my life. There in the middle of the field between these cute little flowers I felt myself so good and so right like I do belong to be there. Odd and confusing feeling, yet so lovely one – to find your place, the place where your heart and soul sing, where you enjoy every second and where nothing bothers you from that perfect harmony with nature and complete dissolve in it. There is so less I need, just this peaceful island where nobody can find me. My mountains will protect me from anything bad and they will accompany me in my search of silence. It does important to enjoy silence, sometimes words are not required. Mountains, powerful and unknown nature gifts can read between the lines of my soul. You just look at them and see their silent response. That is all you need. That is all I need:

What does speak to the core of your very being? Where is your island?

I believe my little film will bring you joy and peace and will make your week special!

ALL THINGS ARE DIFFICULT BEFORE THEY ARE EASY

Look around and stop for a second, the most wisdom things are right in front of your nose…

Though we are too involved in many unimportant chores that forgot to be able to recognize the most obvious…

Somewhere, something I am thinking of…

New projects, new images, new ideas until I can, until I enjoy…

Until my territory is unrestricted…

I would like to make all things simplier!

Love you all,

Japanese Year in Ukraine

2017 is the year of Japan in Ukraine. Thus, Ukrainians have a unique chance to get to know more about Japan and its culture. I was particularly lucky to visit Japanese Gardens which are presented right in the city. I felt very inspired by the seen. There is no single element or design component indicative of or required for a Japanese garden. The simplicity of Zen design is often the main finished attribute of a Japanese garden, which encompasses peace, calm and serenity. Varieties of design elements are generally incorporated to achieve the full effect of a traditional Japanese garden. Have a look:

Spring Stroll with Camera

There’s nothing more exciting and challenging than a new video about spring!😊 This time it was particularly captivating since I was literary under the weather and grey clouds that were frowning at me. They were pretty against of me, did several attempts to stop me, but failed. No power can stop Ann when she holds her beloved camera and hunts for spectacular views to share. There’s always something unique to be seen through my camera lenses. Believe me It’s worse fighting against weather and any other obstacles. For some of you this video will be special one, cannot tell why – you have to watch it till the end, surprise is waiting for you…😉 I guess spring is the most generous season, isn’t it, dear artists? So much beauty in every detail that you need extra time and battery to capture them. I continue my spring journey to discover the unseen and to admire the known, are you in? Then click the magic link:

My dear Friends, remember that my reward is your sweet comment, I need them so much! Thank you!

Love you all,

Aren’t these colors make your surroundings brighter and warmer. I love first touches of Spring, they are so innocent and fresh. Spring is long awaited, spring is already in our mind, heart and soul.  The most inspiring period, especially for me, since I am engaged in a new venture. I started to write an ebook about Ukraine. 10 stories spiced with interesting and unknown information as well as decorated with unique photos. What will you say? Would it be interesting to you? I appreciate your answer. Thank you.

Have a relaxing Sunday evening and successful forthcoming working week!

Love you all,

Sunday Photo Quiz

My cute Friends, the best way to relax at Sunday evening is to look at these photos and answer me “what does you see?”:

“Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.” (Milan Kundera)

“You cannot score a goal when you are sitting on the bench. To do so, you have to dress up and enter the game.” (Israelmore Ayivor)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love you all,
