This "business center" is located in a center of the town Balahna, not far from embankment of Volga.
Balahna is an old but quite shabby town in 37 kilometers from Nizhny Novgorod.
Big red outdoor sign with red background tells "SMALL JAPAN. Sport, fishing, relaxation, tourism". In what connection is Japan here, I don't know. I can only wonder whether they sell samurai swords, kimonos, sushi, rolls, wasabi, wands for eating, Panasonic appliances, Yamaha musical synthesizers and books of Haruki Murakami.. :))
Sign beneath it is "Breeze Computers, 2nd floor".
Red sign to the left of brown door tells "Cat's house".
Signs to the left of "Small Japan", from up to down:
"Independent assessment of property"
"Films. Computer games"
"Agency of legal protection "Assistance" "
"Repairing of refridgerators and home appliances"
"Real estate agency"
"Hairdressing saloon for men. 2nd floor"
Yellow and white sign at the right side tells "Filling of tax statements. Return of income tax. 2nd floor"

Хехе. Отличная фотка. Этап первичного накопления капиталу достиг и Балахны (так правильно?) тоже.

I like much this patchwork of colors that you collected very well.

I like the clarity of your image and you have just the right about on all sides of the frame so that nothing has been clipped, there is nothing being forced into frame and also not too much that our eyes wander off.
The image gives a feeling of this area of town well. I imagine it would be a nice place to take a walk through on a warm day.

A very colourful collection of signs makes this a most interesting composition - thanks for the translation.
