This display is next to entrance to a Russian Souvenir Shop where they also sell vodka. The "Take a Piece Of Russia with You" sign caught my eye and I instinctively raised my camera to shoot. For some reason, the man drinking his vodka slapped his forehead when he saw me take the shot. I had to explain that I was just taking a picture of the sign behind him. Wanna piece of Russia anyone? LOL! Soooo funny!

That's a terrific, colorful poster, Rey, and what timing you had on the noggin-knocking! Poor old guy was probably thinking, "Oh, no! I KNEW I should've worn my good outfit today!" As for his glass of vodka...I wonder where the bottle is...

LOL. These folks and their vodka. Just step into your picture, sit down and then slap themselves when they think you really wanted a picture of them. I love the colorful sign and see why you wanted a picture of it, but the guy makes this an Mt delight my friend.

Maybe he was saying, "I could have had a V8"? HeeHee....

How fun, Rey. I am so nervous taking photos with people in them. I did this at a beach recently and wondered who would come and destroy my camera! HA!

Great work!
