First of all I took picture of this building on the BG, but when I looked at the pictures on my home computer, I noticed this scene, where there is no bum, and each busy with something.
It is some funny for the 1st May, isn't it?

Excellent title for this scene!
You are right it's funny. This scene is seemingly chaotic but your composition is excellent and shows that in a chaos can be an order :-)
Have a nice day!

A fascinating scene from daily life. The point of view was perfect to capture it all. Street photography par excellence.

I like busy scenes like this where there is so study in the detail. Each little group, each individual... is concentrating on his/her endeavors. The children playing the photographer creating a portrait of the boy, and football hungry Spaniards, concentrating on keeping the ball in the air. But it is the depth-of-field that makes it especially interesting, with the details of the door in the background even visible.

A busy scene, but well cropped to reduce it to its basic patterns of human behaviour. I love the foreground action, with the photographer and subject oblivious to the fun and games in the background. There are really four levels in this shot, with the four groups all engaged differently but somehow connected. Well seen, once you saw the shot on the computer - I find this happens a lot with my own photos. In fact this recent one is not unlike some of my recent shots. I like this kind of thing.

eating, playing, snapping, shooting, smilling, posing, talking and laughing, this really does have somebody doing almost everything! A wonderful daily life scene and so much more so in the fact that every single person in your capture is so intently focused on what they are doing! Really nicely done.
Have a great weekend

this is really funny and so interesting. I like very much the tight framing that accentuates the vibrancy of this composition of scenes and makes our glance bounce around so delightfully. The architectural setting is attractive and impressive but with its neutral tones provides an ideal backdrop for such a busy and vivid activity and character study. Sharpness and lighting are excellent and support your idea effectively. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Provocative view of multiple activities in front of the ancient Toledo doorway. Clever combination of different interests in one scene, which is repeated wherever tourists go, of course the cameraman is my favorite.
Have an excellent journey in America,

I would imagine that the Spanish people would have a strong reason to use the 1st of May to demand more jobs, better pensions, less corruption, improved health service - you name it. But having fun at the entrance of a church looks just as nice on a photo. There is so much going on here that it almost seems you had instructed all of them what to do and then shouted: "Action".
A very lively and nice photo.

I think I liked your note as much as the photo...you used the word "bum!" :) You see, your English is just fine! What a great shot, don't you love it when an unexpected little treasure pops up? This has so much going on, it almost looks like the set for a teenagers after school show on t.v. On one hand, it could be viewed as "staged," but on the other hand it's completely natural and candid.
More great timing to catch another photographer at work, but this time it's an angle not often seen, making it even more interesting. My favorite thing though is the young man on the steps taking a big bite of his sandwich...I'm sure he wouldn't want this to be seen. haha A fun and lively image...and for one that you didn't consciously plan, this turned out great! So much of the every day life all rolled into one frame. Have a terrific weekend. Take care.

The right tittle for this daily life scene.
It is curious to see that old man among young people. No limits to enjoy the life. Well done.

Excellent picture but above all you demonstrate that while a picture show reality the mind gives a sense to the image. So each of us observe the same image but see something different.

very nice groups of people , each one isolated from the others by an action. nice framing, light and sense of movement. the human life is here.
