The Livadia Palace in Yalta on the Crimean peninsula. It is the place of the Yalta Conference in 1945 (Stalin, Roosevelt, Churchill). Personnel of all kinds provides here for order - inside and outside the palace. The woman with the blue outfit is resting here from work. On the pedestal, she looked like a working monument.

Hi Wolfgang. A living monument to all the broom pushers. A quirky angle on humanity seems to be your forte. Nice colours and excellent exposure- as usual. Best wishes. Klaudio.

A very amusing image featuring this living statue complete with the tools of her trade. Her pose and expression suit perfectly. Finely observed and nicely presented.

Il ne faudrait pas que son employeur mette la main sur cette photo, la dame pourrait perdre son travail. Elle profite bien de la verdure environnante pour se rafraichir un peu.

Once again a superb observation. The woman indeed looks like a living statue. Her posture and her equipment have formed a number of attractive triangles and she is nicely framed by the trees. Not every tourist would consider taking a picture like this. Thanks for sharing it with us.

She indeed looks like a statue sitting in that pose. I like the dust pan and broom sitting next to her showing what kind of work she does. Nice and funny shot.

Everything so neatly posed - the lady the broom, the dustpan. Indeed it could be a monument. She looks very relaxed and at peace despite her mundane work. I think the colours are great.

This is great environmental portrait about this lady and her occupation while taking a short break. Plenty of interest and well detailed in wonderful setting which combines well conveying a sense of place and good balance between the subject and her environment. Her face shines through and the telling moment well caught. The details of her; the dress etc make great photographic subjects, tis would get the message across in an indirect way, as these are important to what she does for a living. I have to admit that the colors, combination of RGB are delightful, the equally important elements that really lift this image so well. Great, you have keen eyes and imagination. Well done. Congrats

Funny scene. For me, the trip to Ukraine was like a trip in the time vehicle. It is amazing, specially in the west part, that it looks like in the old times. Wonderful photo, so genuine. tired woman, so just sits and relax in the sun. Nice batural photo. Fine observation.
