This is "El Viajero" (The Traveler) by Eduardo Urculo, one of the many statues in downtown Oviedo. It stands in Plaza de Porlier, at the intersection of Calle de Mendizábal with Calle de San Francisco.
The lady was posing for a man, I am guessing her partner, and seemed irritated by his slowness. She perked up however right away when a stranger with a large camera showed interest in the subject matter, and did a pretty good job as a model. All this while the other man was closer to her, to my right, shooting from a different angle. You notice that I have her undivided attention... I felt a bit like the grass on the other side.

Hola Roly.... how are you? :-)
Great capture, when I scroll down the picture before reading the note, I thought boy that woman travelling very 'light' hahaha...
Agree with you.. .. she's all yours in the picture. Great composition, I think her red shoes is also the highlight of the picture.

Une image que j'ai dans un coin de ma mémoire, j'ai vécu quelques années à Oviedo et cette sculpture me ramène dans un joli passé.
Merci, tu as bien capté une scène fraiche d'un endroit magnifique.

Hehe ! I hope there wasn't too much strife in the couple after this photo session :-)
Extremely good capture with a interesting contrast between the dark colour of the standing "viajero" and the vivid colours of the sitting "viajera".
Great sharpness against the blurred background.
