Odessa is without doubt a beautiful and interesting city. The streets are alive. Many shops, restaurants, cultural institutions, churches, etc. Above the entrance of a cafe there was a lifelike woman with a cup of coffee in her hand. She raised and lowered the cup constantly - really an attraction. I took a picture.
Unfortunately I can not read the inscription above the figure. An enlarged detail of the figure and the inscription is in the workshop. Maybe someone can help me.
See the .... W O R K S H O P .

A well composed image with a good juxtaposition between the lady with her daughter and the lady with her coffee, presumably stood over the entrance to a café. An interesting and unusual display sign, though she looks in need of some tender loving care.

Je ne comprends pas très bien le propos de l aphoto et je ne sais pas ce que la dame veut photographier mais cela semble intéressant, probablement le manequin au dessus de la porte.

I don't know a word of Ukrainan or Russian, but I think the sign says that this is a museum of wax figures. No matter what, it's a very likeable photo with a good balance of the composition and a fine connection between the live persons and the wax figure.

first of all, Gert is right: it's a museum of wax figures.
The uppermost words say: "Museum of wax figures", and below: "at aunt Utya's" :) it's in Ukranian, of course, but it is very similar to Russian.
I like this curious capture:) As always, you shoot very interesting scenes!
best wishes from Moscow,

dies ist genau das, was TE so interessant macht: ein eindrucksvolles Photo, das eine Geschichte erzählt und diese wiederum erfährt ein Fortsetzung in den Kommentaren der Betrachter.
Die Dame im langen Kleid korrespondiert wunderbar mit der Wachsfigur! Sehr gut gesehen und perfekt umgesetzt!
