Photographer's Note

"Dont photograph me, I am old and you will show my picture in your country, you should photograph young girls instead, and show them, dont take picture from me..." stressed this kind granny passing by, when I was taking pictures from a typical belorussian village cross, colorful and decorated with artificial flowers at the occasion of some orthodox holiday (I guess a sort of All Souls Day). Sorry for not obeying her appeal, but her appearance was irresistible for me, and she also obviously had a fun - preserving this ability was impressive, taking into account her long and not easy life, perhaps without any move from a boring and sad belorussian countryside. People try to make it more joyful by what is available - painting their houses, churches and crosses in bright colours.
