Picture WEEK
Flower Polessye: "Do not drown!" (Prize — radio)
The last time I presented a new name. Vadim live outside the homeland. If navedyvaetsja home takes a lot of traveling through Belarus. Instituted a series of "Landscapes Polessye" of 3 photos that sent the attention of perfection memories creator and subject purity fixed place, now has a more successful sequel, which was awarded the prize. Of 2-publications I highlight three of the more successful Vadim "Nerush shore" (the last, eleventh week) and present two songs "Flower Polessye" and "Hot day". Unfortunately, the creator does not provide a clear geographical information regarding the captured scenes (which saves the river and what the terrain, what a flower and what river flock, where that leaky roof buslyankay and so on.). Hopefully Vadim writes about this in "An Essay on the favorite." And yet — congratulations.
Looking at the beautiful scenery marshy Vadim (like many others on the pages of our fatakonkursu), then I thought that this is the best state Belarusian tourist product which needlessly strain the power to do now. Failure and disaster in that moment and valuable in most cases does not mean either destroyed and created strshny ersatz and substitute (I have not mentioned the first case the words "line" and another is "Belovezhskaya safari", which is said to mouthpieces system yes more).

Shooting mostly from various points Belarusian space perfectly formed one theme that stands a good assessment creator, who was able to see it and fix. "Quiet" theme has a special way of life of the Belarusian province. Ah well conditioned own plastic weave the creator: "Great tastes of different calibers and standing on the porch, remind me of their respective owners — people of different ages, from time to time zigzag fate, and the road that leads to the temple became one — and for the great man . "
Maybe Yarosh drew attention to the phenomenon of what is meant to do in the society of net tradition: always go to the temple on the bike so special solemn transport, which can be compared unless the stroller or carriage.

Essays FROM Favourites
Anton Yakutovich eleventh (last) week. Pictures from the photo archives of home (1937): "Against the Stream", "Melodies of the Motherland."
(C) Anton Yakutovich Against the current
"Snapshot" Against the Stream "can not be called at random …"
"Thank you for helping my attention to historical snapshot. This is a victory of our family» and, at first — my great-grandmother. Since she belonged to a photo, and my grandmother kept them.
Great-grandmother’s name was Apollonia Antonovna. She was born into a Polish family comfortably and». Youth held in his home country, a lot of traveling, playing sports, including veslavannem because snapshot "Against the Current" call can not be accidental. Moreover. Right behind the happy youth moved sur» harsh topical tests. After my grandmother came from my great-grandfather and remained in Pinsk, her ancestors did not want to admit it, the marriage was considered unequal position and their family».
Then grandfather was persecuted and exiled to the virgin lands in Kazakhstan. Went after him and Apollonius Antonovna. Life there was unbearably cruel. Soon grandfather fell ill with cancer and died. Great-grandmother raised without the aid of other offspring. After a wave of restitutions, passed in 1953, a great-grandmother with her son returned home. It did not break lihaletstsya years, she continued to live intensely, wrote an article in the newspaper "Pinsky Gazette", all looking for their own way and was really strong-willed person. That’s why I referred to the picture "Against the Stream" as the only way and not in another can be characterized by a difficult-to-date picture of the heroine way — my great-grandmother.
