This is really funny view for me.
In WS you can see the original photo. It looks like an usual street photo of Avila.
But usually I like to research the details of my archive photos.
I wonder with this amazing neighborhood the school (ESCUELA DE IDIOMAS) and the bar.
What could be better to drink two Miguel beer after the long lessons of Spanish language? Why not?

This is very interesting. In Sweden it is sometimes regarded as important that there shouldn't be any shops selling sweets close to a school. I wonder what the local politicians here would say if they found anything like this.
But what is more interesting is what a drastic cropping can do to a picture. This really shows the importance of looking at your own photos with a different set of eyes than you used when taking them. As a composition this is a clear improvement from the original shot, and a lot funnier too. It also speaks well of the quality of your photo that you could make such a big blow-up of a small detail and keeping a good sharpness.

hello Serghei, I do not find it strange. It is a school of Spanish language and culture, so for foreigner, teenagers or adults. They have also the courses of Spanish gastronomy and wines and courses 50+. So it is not a bad idea to practice what you have learned chatting with locals in a restaurant or bar. Excellent cut from the bigger photo.
We visited different places in Avila.

I have a picture from Paris of a bar located next to a post office, which I though was a strange combination as well....send a package, have a drink! :) I really like both of these images, each one stands on its own merits and has a distinct quality from the other. I honestly don't know which one I prefer the most, either one could end up in this spot.
This tighter framing certainly details the bar and school that you wanted to emphasize, which also has created a block type visual with the strong shapes from this isolated section. Can't go wrong either way. I just hope no one go to the bar, drinks too much and forgets everything they just learned in school! :o
Have a great day. Now it's my turn to go off to bed.

It's interesting to see how you produced this photo by savagely cropping the original. You did well to remember what you had photographed. The quality and sharpness is still good. It is certainly humorous in the juxtaposition of the two buildings - perhaps the teachers need to visit the bar to recover from the day's classes. A very good piece of work, nicely presented.

A bar and a school, a perfect compliment to each other, and as you say what could be better after a long day studying than a cold beer. As well as the funny side of this image, its a great street scene too!
All the best

Intteresting capture . We have learned again something through TE and your entry.
This would be not alloved in my country. According the existing regulations in Turkey theremust be a distance of minimum 100 m between bars and schools as well as temples.
TFS and best regards
