Have you seen "Night of the Sunflowers"? These pics remind me of that - the young people leaving the villages for the city, abandoned homes. I remember being in Poland when they had a referendum on joining the EU. They were harvesting with many people manually with horses and carts and I was thinking "all this is history. Soon you will have one giant field and some machines"

Sounds like me...all my work was taken on the laptop/hard drive, EOS 1...its a real test of my inner strength!!! 8 years in Africa, shot at, spat at, gear stolen, but the place keeps me here, using a borrowed point and shoot for the moment, keeps me sort of sane!! be well be wise and keep taking pics..Regards Athol

It's such an amazing place the further north you go the wilder it is, sort of cowboy town stuff, but it's mind blowing to get into it, some amazing photo opportunities, but it does test your sanity, i gave up for 8 months just hung around, but it's a drug, and it's hard not to get involved, i guess the real question is why did all this happen and for what reason, that i can't answer...i did a stint for the UN, it's a great way to get to places on the back of doing work for them, but your'e on your own when the shit hits the fan, now just stick to corporate brochure work, safer,dull but you are usually alive at the end of it!!!
