A new beginning

As there was quite long period of silence from us – from the begining of 2013 we decided to revive this project and change our way how news should be presented.    We think, that visual content of our surroundings can tell much more than any of us can summarise in simple article.

Keeping this mind we will stay focusing on what is happening around Lithuania, just in another way. As much as we can we will try to not to be another  “high-res HDR exclusive”  photo blog, but rather keep posting daily life images from around the country.

If you have any interesting to share – do not hesitate and drop a line to lithuaniareports@gmail.com
