The Livadia Palace is now a museum of contemporary history. It is the location of the conference of Stalin, Churchill and Rosevelt in 1945. Formerly resided here, the Czar Nicholas II.
Nonstop, visitors go through the rooms. Museum attendant are seen everywhere. But this work is tiring. The woman has made itself comfortable on a chair by the window.

Visiting the museum and getting the attendant on frame. :) Nice one. Yes their job is indeed tiring. The exposure is nice.

Asleep on the job, let's hope she didn't get caught:-) A fine capture and presentation. I like the way the side lighting brings out the gingery tones in her hair.

Hi my dear Wolfgang
Sorry for my late action.
This shot is very significant portrait shot by perfect framework, great composition and outstanding sharpness in the detail as usual. Great presentation for her pose and expression and nice usage of light and shadow. Thanks for your sharaing and have a good Saturday!

Great shot - there's always something fun about catching people snoozing! She is caught having a siesta, a nice candid shot so well depicted and timely captured right at the top of the action. I guess nobody can blame her as she deserves the much needed rest and she's got the right idea during this weather and she does look nice and comfy in there. Excellent mood to this one and the composition works so well with the surroundings she's in. The caption fits the image perfectly, an excellent observational capture. A dreamy softness momentarily. Well done. Congrats

A well timed portrait. I don't blame her for getting tired from this work. In the National museum of Tirana I saw guards sitting among the artefacts smoking and preparing their lunch on a gas burner. Anyway, the light falls nicely on her head and her red hair and she holds her arms very nicely.

Well seen and executed scene. She looks really tired...
An eye-catching work with a great note.
Have a nice day! Malgorzata
