Gedimino prospectas, the main street in Vilnius have most of the governmental institutions in Lithuania. Banks, shops, ministries etc. Personally i prefer the old town with all narrow and winding streets and a blend of many different architectural styles.
And the picture? It was an ice cream vendor on Gedimino prospectas who waited for customers. One of my favourite Salvador Dali paintings is "Soft constructions with boiled beans" I don`t know why that painting came up in my mind in this situation but that is the explanation of my title. I just chosed a new name to fit the cubic ice cream box

Det här är väl inte helt likt Dalimålningen, men okej, associationer mår bra av att flöda fritt. Kul titel i alla fall till en riktigt originell komposition som vittnar om ett mycket bra bildsinne. De som vill ha vykort från Vilnius blir kanske besvikna, men jag gillar den här bilden i högsta grad. Helt klart i bästa Wolfgang-klass.

You are very alert to spotting adverts that link closely to the people around! Well, certainly the features fit in very well with your title! It is such a clever composition, with great contrasts of light and shadow.
I like it very much.
Bravo for your originality!!

Your photo is interesting.
Super POV and composition.
Excellent light and sharpness.
willperrett (11918) 2014-08-21 13:26
A wonderfully graphic semi-abstract. I like the peek-a-boo quirky humour too. We certainly don't need or want to see more of the owner of the legs! Bet she's not the owner of the eye.

Good observation, perfect capture ! It's absolute selefexplanatory.

this is a brilliant composition, the scene composed itself in a very playful, surrealistic way, you realized its potential and captured it in an admirable way. There's very fine sharpness and a wonderful play of light, shadow and colours. Impossible not to smile and play with the interaction of the various elements. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

You certainly were aware of the lady behind the poster, and combined some strange - yet nice composition.
Reading the body-lnagauage of the way she sit, she might be reading or bussy with her cell...
emka (107925) 2014-08-21 23:49
I like the posts that make me smiling. And looking at this i laugh loud. Soft construction - these legs look soft, no doubts. And some surreality as well. Well spotted and presented.

Gigidusud (21247) 2014-08-22 13:54
Nice graphical composition with a beautiful shadow play and light. Well seen!
Have a nice Week-end.

I would these picture cataloguing as experimental picture, through the lady behind the advertisement, but every picture has his value.
Nice composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-08-23 7:23
Very nice combination of art work and real person. Beautiful legs! Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
saxo042 (37968) 2014-08-23 7:53
En ganska surrealistisk bild av denna "huvudfoting". Mycket väl observerat!
alvaraalto (20704) 2014-08-26 12:31
Wonderful combination of different element put together in an amazing picture.
This is worth to get a place in Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
annjackman (21903) 2014-08-28 5:15
I like this very much for its very unusual composition. Excellent juxtaposition of the poster and the legs. The light is interesting and well handled.
Kind Regards, Ann

Un retour sur celle ci, j'aime l'originalité de la composition, bravo pour le cadrage, le jeu ombre et de lumière, et le coup d'il, superbe
danos (103216) 2015-08-07 13:07
nice the view as the presentation of this abstractive shot with the huge eye on the right to 'watch' the passing by passengers if looking the legs of the woman???
Have a good WE,Danos
CLODO (35956) 2015-08-12 0:13
Nice and original composition, full of questions, with a link betwen the lady legs and the face in the advert
Well seen and taken
My warmest regards
BennyV (20767) 2015-09-19 2:24
A terrific snap, Boa, and you came up with a great title to match it. A most pleasant and suggestive composition, with lots of associations popping up. Selling ice cream is not one of them! Haha.
Thanks for sharing & have a fine week/end.
