My dear Friends,

I am happy to announce that my book is available in Apple Books on Your Mac or IOS device, please click here: https://itunes.apple.com/book/id1436577838

Let’s peep into Chapter 2 entitled FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE THE MOST LASTING:

Franz Kafka said, “First impressions are always unreliable”. Thus, I would urge you to visit – or re-visit – Ukraine with a view to changing any negative impression you may have formed. Let me invite you to my mysterious country. Let me guide you – I know you are intrigued. Every word you read here should make you hungry for more. That is my intention, and I will provide you with everything your capricious soul desires. We will have an unforgettable journey around my country:

It blooms in spring

And fades in fall

Its winter roads

Are full of snow

And summer days

I won’t let you know

As you should come

And find on your own…

Ann Romanenko

Stay Healthy, Vegetables From Garden

 

Hello, my little Friends,

Summer is the best season for our health since the choice of vegetables and fruits is the largest one. So many vitamins in one plate. Who would know that cucumber is one of the oldest cultivated crop, originated mainly in northern India. Cucumbers are excellent source of vitamins K, C and different B vitamins. They are also very good source of sodium, copper, amino acids, carbohydrates, soluble and insoluble fiber content. It is no wonder that your skin will look great after smashing yourself with a piece of cucumber.

The word “radish” comes from the Latin “radix,” meaning “root,” and the Greek word “raphanus,” which translates to “quickly appearing”. Well, I did recognize it, radishes were the first in my garden! Radishes contain significant amounts of vitamin C and several other vitamins and minerals. I love radishes, they are my favorite red buddies!

Mister Onion is the main at my plate. Onions have been used as food for thousands of years; in ancient Egypt, they were worshiped and used in burial rituals. Onion helps killing microbes in your body, a good disinfector as well, not to mention that it contains a lot of vitamins and minerals! Onions kisses…muuah!

Stay in tune for more veggies and fruits from my garden and many fun facts about them!

International Day of Happiness

Dear Friends,

Have you every heard of the International Day of Happiness?

The International Day of Happiness was introduced by the General Assembly of the United Nations during 2012 and was celebrated for the first time in 2013.

The original idea came from the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayan region of Asia. There, the population is thought by many to be among the happiest in the world due to the holistic approach to life and the amount of importance which is placed on the well being of people and communities, as much as material wealth.

I guess it is a good reason to stop for a moment and think about what is happiness? You may find the answer at once or think of it for a longer time. But it seems to me that happiness is when you feel yourself happy no matter of anything. Hell with everything, I am happy today to share my recent photoworks (a good reason to make this day special and order a canvas here pictorem):

2017 A Life Started Anew

Every new year starts with a new calendar, this forthcoming 2017 is not an exception to the rule. There was an option to make up a calendar of my photos at redbubble and I could not resist the temptation  to take this opportunity.  I made a careful selection of all the uploaded images and choose one particular for every month. By clicking the following link you will be able to page through every month and image selected: https://www.redbubble.com/people/anrostudio/calendars/24305501-2017-a-life-started-anew?p=calendar&ref=artist_shop_grid

calendar

The front page only is available here. All other pages are visible via link above (there will be   buttons to press). Calendar Size is  11.7″ x 16.5″(Printed to fit A3). Tough wire binding and hanger, stunningly sharp digital printing, start the year with the month of your choice, 200gsm satin art paper with a tougher cover.

It does mean a lot to me. It looks like my final photo report on my photography venture. I opened my page at redbubble this year. It was not a simple decision, I knew that market is competitive (i still feel it) and I might not be successful. I am not able to boast about my success, however, I think I can be proud of giving it a try and involving myself into adventurous world of photohunting. I’ve grabbed a lot and so much unknown await for me yet. I plunged into the magical world of still image and dared to experiment. I did many mistakes and will do, but “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
― Neil Gaiman together with Ann

My calendar is among unique Christmas gifts that can be purchased for 24.59$ and still can be delivered before Christmas with expedited shipping. Choice is yours!

Love you all,

Kyiv in Christmas Postcards

My city, Kyiv, is especially beautiful in pre-Christmas white season. Though every city (or village) takes its best sparkling outfit on during winter holidays. Don’t know which color in trend this season, but white seems to be still popular. I am looking out of my window and admire fluffy snowflakes dancing in the frosty air. Lady Winter has landed in Kyiv and covered everything with snow carpets.
