REVIEW FATASKRYNI filming WEEK correspondence
Than to curse the darkness and mist, light Light stories
Asyagayuchy fotaprastoru that is fixed over the past decades, it might be worth, and was taken aback that the legacy we have now. How much valuable documented this and impartially» "conscious" is involuntarily yellowed prints.
With regard to family albums, so this is the first textbooks in the family» and and home, where prized memory, harmony and order, freedom and dignity. From time to time — in spite of the fact "textbook" that painstakingly written ideologues from the state machine with a note "from the president." This is true assured our first retro Publication: archival photo light scatters the darkness and horror, secures our feelings and actions, love for the Fatherland, fatherland and its true history.
Of the digital photos, both technical and liberal that will double and triple that heritage, make it different, meaningful, plyakatnay. It is worth to remember Confucius: "Instead of cursing the darkness, light a small candle try." To paraphrase, speak out as follows: the curse and obscurantist haze, light retro light fatakonkursu "My Belarus!"
Turn to the last address. Kasia Shumskaya of "Belarusian polis’ky town" Mozyr created a fascinating historical publication last week, this time falls pages town early 20-ies of the last century.
Sending also excerpts from the book "Good churches and prihodov Minsk diocese", year 1879, she involuntarily said: "Unfortunately, there is not the 1st time does not occur in a word" Belarus "or" Belarusians. "And you want! Quote from the book: "Primeval this country in almost all respects. Civilization is not a lot more affected Polessye: live there and work as alive grandfathers. "Retro publication Kasi Shumsky complement old cards from George Vysotsky and Egor.

"At the moment that the village will not find on the map, it was only from the farm my grandfather …"
With the attempt to make sense of their place in the historical fotaprastory — Yuri Vysotsky. "Photos from the family archives, and my my girls," — said a source created by the letter. Comments creation:
(C) Yuri Vysotsky Home photo archive. Sverzhen old village, Stolbtsovsky borough, 1963. "Today the school bring us closer to the light standards Grandpa Lenin." First left my mom, she was here eight years, close friends from school.
(C) Yuri Vysotsky Home photo archive. Sverzhen old village, Stolbtsovsky borough, 1954. This can be on the bike and ride to Vilnius … In those days, it was great to buy, perhaps unprincipled that now — an expensive car. My mom’s a teacher (pictured), we must assume was comfortably lady.
(C) Yuri Vysotsky Home photo archive. Columns late 1930s. A couple of years will be war, and the children’s eyes will see something that will never build did not have to … For sure it is not clear who in the picture, signed only a year — 38 or 39 minutes, do not tell.
(C) Yuri Vysotsky Home photo archive. Stolbtsovsky borough, 1920. On the 15th anniversary of the marriage came to Columns "withdraw" in honor of the anniversary of my relatives girls. After the war, all the contacts and information about the family» yu were lost.
(C) Yuri Vysotsky Home photo archive. New Village, Smorgon district, 1960. Now this village you will not find on the map, it was only on my grandfather’s farm. In the photo my father and an old fence that same farm. Countryside and currently stands on the same spot as the fence. Bolshevik plots lost in the darkness of history, their place at the moment grows rye and flax local so called SEC and pradedovskoy legacy Long live — I often come with a folder there farm is located 14 kilometers from the district center, a kilometer from the village of clay.
Add Jura that the current system (mostly local, economic nomenklatura) under the guise of "health" purges somewhere daastatku tries to kill the remnants of farms, estates and tracts. One of the clearest examples — Stolbtsovsky area with which you bloodlines.

Everything has its own age
A series of "commemorative" snapshots sent Valery Kazyuminski. "Meanwhile, it floated away, departed, and funny day present, even the future is not only the pain of loss, sadness or bitterness, and lyrical grateful Us — says series creator. — The main thing that all had their own age and lived on the ancestral standards.

They have lived all their time, almost nothing remains — that fell under the pressure of the wind, that lightning stabbed oh. This also tapped maple lightning, it broke and fell off, leaving only traces of burns on styrchaku.
"What is aging and leaves, and always wish hunt delay, that has departed and will not return, you need to keep in mind" — sums Valery Kazyuminski, creator of the series "Everything has its own age."

And my grandmother taught us to live, the highest pain loves our dear Belarus …
Grandmother lives on the edge of Minsk near Stepyanka. Her home is actually worth of pine forest. She grew up in lesnichovtsy grandmother (father Adam was a forester and a mother Vstsinni entire people, the tension of the adjacent villages, was a member for advice), because she is able to speak with nature and God — it is non-transferable skill passed on to us, their grandchildren. Grandma taught us to look at the sky and get answers from him.
And I decided to share with you a simple transparent realization of divine joy lurking … Blessed is not the one who looks at the sky — and the one who understands.
In the photo you can see the tall pines that strive in height, as the thoughts of the poet pines burned in the Blessed death suns pine that as a soul lyustruyutstsa in water on a background of heaven; feel intoxicating freshness … In short, to commune with nature, which is one of the guises Zvyshnyaga.
