I went to Kiev yesterday, for a one day trip. Not really a trip, since I was working, I had to take photographs of the people who were invited (mostly managers and a politician). We took off at 7.15 (the first time). We had to return because we had some technical problems, came back to Brnik and re-depart at around 10h. Because of that we missed the press conference and cut our lunch short (although we had more than enough time). After that we took a 20 min strawl on Lavra, got on the bus and drove to the airport.

Here are a few captured moments, most of them are taken through the (broken) windshield, so don't expect technical perfection (windows were dirty and as usual when shooting through the glass, I had problems with reflections and loss of sharpness - and I'd break the cheap kit lens if I had leaned it on the window, while the bus was driving).

One of the churches in Lavra

Fuck the traffic signs!:)

Ukranian Police patrol car. I must say ukranian officers do a great job directing the traffic (unlike Slovenian, which are mostly just interested in giving tickets for speeding etc, but do nothing to prevent traffic jams).

Car dealers even get their signs on traffic signs (it's logical, that's probably the only thing people give attention to).

The outcome of a "misunderstanding". Don't mess with Ukranian truckers. Respect the rule of the stronger.

Lada by Ferrari:). This one really sucks technically, but I had to show it to you.

Sem lih prejle videl na poročilih prispevek o iskanju ukrajinskih blondink v Kijevu (na isti ekspediciji). So naporni taki enodnevni foto shoot report izleti ane?

So vam vsaj dali jedačo in pijačo?

Niti nisem bil preveč zjeban. Za jesti in piti je bilo vsega dovolj, le hrana je bila bolj za silo, čeprav smo bili v neki hudi restavraciji, pred katero ni bilo avta pod 100k evrov.

Bejbo sem pa eno samo dobro videl. Razočaranje, glede na to kaj se govori. No tudi niso ravno moj tip, meni so bolj južne všeč - Latinke, Grkinje, Srbkinje, Italjanke...
