As some readers have rightly pointed out, there are few photographs from Odessa in this blog to date.
In an effort to change that there is a new category on the right of your screen, aptly entitled “Photographs of Odessa – Irisha Onischuk”
Irisha is a student in Odessa who has a love for photography, and it seems to me a good eye for it as well, and so hopefully as time progresses this category will fill up with wonderful photographs of Odessa taken by Irisha.
So when my ruminations are irritating you, take a few minutes every now and then to peruse her photographs and then realise that Odessa and Ukraine, regarless of how badly it is run, is really a rather beautiful place regardless.
Go on – have a look now!
