In the Mediterranean City Antalya, the municipialty has placed on benches some bronze figures from ancient periodsof Antalya.
This woman (most probably a turist) was taking a rest there and the bronze Roman soldier tried to establish a dialogue with her !
Antalya Belediyesinin şehir caddelerine yerleştirdiği bronz Romalı askerlerden biri, bu turist hanımla sohbet etmek ister gibi !

una simpatica fotografia colta al volo in Antalya, luogo divenuto assidua meta di turisti.
Molto bella l'iniziativa della minicipalità di porre queste statue che abbelliscono la località.
Quanto alla foto appare subito evidente il bel contrasto sia tra le due figure, quella reale e quella immaginaria, ma soprattutto tra i diversi colori che le caratterizzano.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

What an excellent grab shot! I guess the statue has been put there (and made in with that attitude and pose) for just such a moment. Glad that you were there to take it!

C'est très vrai que le couple semble en grande conversation. On remarque la qualité de l'écoute de la statue et la délicatesse du mouvement de la dame..

Good frame and colors.
Very impressive statue.

An amusing picture of this silent conversation between statue and human. There is a nice balance of green and yellow. I often see this kind of statues which make interaction possible, but I often find it difficult to get good photos in crowded streets.

Fantastic shot, I am looking hard to see if this is a statue, or a street performer, as the interaction between the two is so lifelike, its uncanny. I love the idea of these characters being installed around the city, it creates and almost otherworldly feel, and provides such an important connection to the past.
Thanks as always

Funny capture of this couple. They are from different worlds, but they seem to get along well. :-) What are the papers in the soldiers lap? I like the leaves behind them, and the glimpse of some other people relaxing in the background.

Interesantan trenutak ...
Gospodja pokusava da uspostavi kontakt sa starim vojnikom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Lepa bronzana skulptura vojnika.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
An interesting moment ...
The lady is trying to make contact with an old soldier ...
Good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Good composition, nice place and moment shown.
Beautiful bronze sculpture of soldiers.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

is she passing him love notes? i think he is more interested than she is, but then again, i might be reading their facial expressions incorrectly ;)
a charming & whimsical capture Mesut ~

Well seen and very amusing Mesut. This couple seem to have a closer relationship than many married couples! Have a fine Sunday. Rosemary

Un étonnant dialogue entre ces deux personnages! Tu as composé une très belle scène et déclenché au bon moment.

Merhaba Mesut bey
It really seems that the ancient warrior and the lady are in some kind of a conversation, almost like an old couple. Great moment, perfectly captured by you.
have a great sunday

A funny situation well caught! effectively, they seem to exchange their adresses in a friendly manner. Smiling is good for health, thank you!
Highmountains (2255) 2013-12-01 7:36
This cant be a statue....No ... he is a Street performer, painted and attired all over.
But a very amusing shot never the less.
Very lively and the the clarity of the shot and its sharpness adds to the effect.
The pavement looks good - clean and polished...
Thanks for sharing, Mesut.

Ciao Mesut, fun composition, nice scene on bench, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
adramad (33600) 2013-12-02 9:49
Sensational composition, besides very sympathetic with this lady who poses as natural with bronze warrior, nice background too, with that kind of palm tree that we see behind.
Beautiful range of very natural colors
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness is also perfect for enjoying the details.
Very well done.
Have a good day.
ChrisJ (93442) 2013-12-04 14:54
I must get down to Antalya one of these days! A superb daily life shot of the bronze statue in the park and the tourist. Good sharpness and excellent diffused lighting, colour & saturation. Good graphism against the darker bg. Tfs!
mkamionka (28424) 2013-12-05 5:31
funny street scene well captured. I am just wondering what is the woman doing here: is she trying to cover something?
Very well done!
ourania (22798) 2013-12-05 9:23
Hello dear Mesut,
this is an amusing and interesting daily life picture that you captured in a simple and natural way. I like very much the distance of your point of view from your theme, it has offered depth and at the same time a clear and close look on the scene. It's funny that the warrior is "showing" more interest while the lady is keeping a distance. There's great depth and I like the inclusion of a wider context. The colours are very pleasing too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
jacquest (17773) 2013-12-05 15:17
This is a candid and funny street shot. I wonder what are those sheets of paper the lady is intested in. She is holding her hat like the shield of the figure. That is funny to see. Light, colors and sharpness are very good.
Buin (42242) 2013-12-07 2:33
Herrlich! Ein Beweis, dass Du mit offenen Augen durch die Welt gehst. Ein in jeder Hinsicht gelungenes Foto, das einen lächeln lässt. Danke dafür!
Herzliche Grüße aus dem tief verschneiten Siegen. In Düsseldorf liegt kein Schnee ;-))
tatadalou (4621) 2013-12-11 19:36
That's a nice initiative from part of city of Antalya ! The attitude of the two "persons" makes your shot really funny. The tourist seems no matter the statue wishes to talk to her !
ikeharel (48388) 2013-12-27 7:08
A lovely photo shown here, Mesut, and made me lough when saw this - hope they were not chatting for too long...
"Super-moment with a statue" - I'd name this, and well done photojob, on a very nice idea.
