I caught this couple standing on a park bench trying to get a better view of what there was that caught their attention , in fact it was nothing more than some visionary lecturing a small crowd ,this taking place in early morning ! Parque Calderon in beautiful Cuenca is where it all happens : a flea market, a band plays some days, it's the city's main plaza located smack in the centre where indeed a lot goes on , it's a place to meet locals too .It is dominated by the 'new ' cathedral on one side while across is the stark white old cathedral renovated in 1985 for the visit of Pope John Paul.

Hi Carol:
this picture is very good.
fantastic POV.excellent capture.
well done Carol,

best regards

Nice Carol .. this actually reminds me of the town square in Antigua too, with the style of buildings visible, and the little metal fence, and the vegetation. They likely all look similar. And those tiny people ... no wonder they had to stand on the bench to see ..hehe!
Very nicely composed shot ... her vivid blue shawl really stands out in the shot.
Great job again Carol.

Hi Carol
Wow you do get around. Goos slice of life capture. The woman's cape really shows well.

Hello, Carol -
Good vision to see and capture this unusual scene. Great compo with the couple slightly offset to the right. The blue of her wrap is really incredible. Very sharp. Well done.

This is really cute. Often the crowd are more interesting than what they're watching. Good timing and nice bright colors. TFS

Well spotted !
Good compo too.
I wonder : do they wear such red stockings all the time ? :-)

Bonjour Carol
Je vous ai souhaité précédemment de belles surprises photographiques....en voici un bel exemple: Costumes qui me semblent traditionnels, comparés à l'habillement lointain, et surtout pose très originale et touchante!
À la prochaine.
