This photo was taken during a spring festival called Meeting of Spring or Зустріч Весна, March, 6th 2010. In this small village in Ukraine, The Meeting of Spring is the single largest public celebration held each year around March, 1st. Each Street creates a float-type submission and everyone who lives on the street passes through the town before doing a skit on the main stage. The subject of the photo is my host mother Laryssa. She and her street neighbors were aliens!
