Xativa, Spain, beautiful sunny Winters day. Many of the older men gather to sit in the little squares dotted around this town, enjoying the sunlight and hearty discussions. Natural light.

    Just loving your ‘people shots’. Do these old gents play chess together in the summer?

  • Thanks Trish, they tend to play Boules early in the morning, disappear mid day when it can hit 45C and then in the evenings, about 10pm when its a little cooler, congregate again and just have a laugh and giggle together.
