Photographer's Note

It is difficult to call attention of the clients, this isn't easy in normal times and during pandemic this is worst yet.
This owner of a shop, that sells shoes and clothes in country style, put this anthropomorphic mannequin waving a plastic bag, in the small banner in his belly is wrote: Are you feeling cold ? Then honk. Few days ago the banner, when the cold days were gone, the sign was different and had another meaning.
Apucarana is the largest town in my micro-region (Ivaí Valley) and it is the second highest here, around 900 meters of altitude what produce strong winds and cold days. This is one of the main streets, dedicated to shops, there is another with more clinics and laboratories.
Why the street was empty ? It was so much cold, people was afraid of pandemic and with no much money and it was early in the morning when I took this photo.
................

Não é fácil chamar a atenção dos clientes, ainda mais em tempos de pandemia.
Esse lojista decidiu colocar esse manequim antropomórfico na calçada, acenando com uma sacola na mão. Na sua barriga está escrito, se estiver sentido frio, buzine ! Dias depois o frio não era mais notícia e ele mudou os dizeres da placa.
Apucarana é a maior cidade da microregião do Vale do Ivaí e a segunda mais alta, famosa por seus ventos constantes e seu frio. Essa é uma das ruas mais famosas e movimentadas, dedicada ao comércio de roupas e calçados, nas proximidades há uma cheia de clínicas e laboratórios.
A rua estava vazia pois era muito cedo, fazia um frio terrível e o povo estava sem dinheiro para gastar e com medo da pandemia.
