Photographer's Note

Today is the International Women's Day. It is celebrated in some countries more than in others. I don't think people are aware of it in the UK at all, but in the Slavic countries, like Poland or Ukraine, it is quite popular. I always forget about occasions like that here but yesterday browsing again through my photos from Ukraine, I found this lovely detail. I thought I will share here this attractive male body with the dedication to women. Sadly, it is quite a terrible time for Ukrainian women. I have read an article today which said that many of them decided to stay and fight in the war, but those who have little children are trying to find refuge away from the war. Over Million women and children crossed the border with Poland already. I hope they will find a safe shelter there. The photo is black and white mainly because the colors were washed out but it made me think about how many Ukrainian men will be killed in this war, and how many families will end up without their fathers. This man in the statue indeed looks as if he was struggling to hold a heavy burden on his shoulders.

The photo presents a fragment of a decorative entrance to the House of Scientists (Будинок вчених) in Lviv. Google Maps says it is an "Opulent 19th-century neo-baroque building & former aristocratic casino, often used as a film set."
