Athletes

Upholding the balcony is a tough work. These athletes (woman and man) also guard the entrance to one of the tenements on Jagiellonska Street (we called this building 'sunny optimism' - you can see it here and here).

Never saw a male-female couple doing this kind of 'work'! I checked the other post and all these images are wonderful: this really an incredible building.
How is in Polish 'sunny optimism'?

I'm with Vogon Poet - "an incredible building"! Can't image having such sculpture at a building's entrance, unless it was some important government building.

Great photograph. I like the composition very much. Except I had to stretch my head. Which was probably good; my neck was getting stiff anyway.

So, I guess I should say, "thanks!"

:-)

You have some truly amazing buildings. I wish they had protected more classic buildings like this in Sydney so that they could still be enjoyed by everyone now.

Piękny portal! Kobieta Atlas faktycznie nie jest zbyt często spotykana.

Kobieta-Atlas może nie, ale Kariatyda :)
(Piszę, bo sam mam przygotowane zdjęcie z panią podtrzymującą balkon, ale nie tak efektowną.)

Before I saw your commentary, I was trying to figure out how they were athletes! :D

Another gorgeous building! I have a friend who loves traveling, and I think I'm going to tell her that she must include Poland in her next European itinerary!

@Vogon Poet - in Polish 'sunny optimism' means "słoneczny optymizm":)

There are some of these figures on Glasgow buildings too, but not this colour! I was just thinking I need to take some pictures of them sometime!
