Photographer's Note

慪ellow and blue in Kiev


Looking for the colours of the Ukrainian flag in my photos I came across this one.
I realise that the yellow of St. Volodymyr抯 Cathedral in Kiev doesn't really correspond to the bright yellow of the flag.
Just a small boost in these days of miserable news about the events in Ukraine.

Convinced that a separation of church and state is important, I hesitated for a moment about using a cathedral to discuss terrible politics. But since politicians are supposed to listen to and respect the wishes of the people and since every religion advocates taking care of the others, it should be possible.

Every time I hear in the news that the Russian army is meeting more opposition than expected, I get a positive feeling.
But then I think back to the almost impossible task for the defense.
Fortunately, the Ukrainians are indestructibly motivated.
