“Киев, Киев, Только Киев!”

Blue and Yellow, originally uploaded by Little Lushie.

The two bottom rows here are representing the Ukrainian flag, which is itself a representation of blue skies and golden fields of rye. A bit like a cheesy Sting tune, but pretty and romantic nonetheless.

I took this picture on Kreschatik (the street leading up to Independence Square, in case anyone wants to test their Orange Revolution trivia skills) a very cold evening in December of the past year, with my brother and mother stamping their feet next to me, wanting to duck into the warmth of the underground pass again.

There is a United Colors of Benetton right below the flag-like windows, I think.

  1. And the flourescent lights in the top represent the eh, materialist hell to which all nations ultimately aspire.
    I mean, rye is nice and all but does it jangle pleasantly in your purse?
    No, thought not.

    The colours below ARE real pretty though.
