I took these pictures on my phone in Kamenets-Podolsky Park. The girl was walking with her father. She went down into the bowl of the fountain - there was a low water level. A few minutes later, everyone heard the sound of an air raid alert. The girl continued to run from one ball to another, playing her game. I was struck by the combination of the incongruous - a bright moment of childhood and a siren signaling that rockets are flying over the territory of Ukraine! A terrible reality and at the same time freedom and joy of life. Kamianets-Podilskyi Ukraine_July 2023
