RASTRO SUNDAYS


Sunday mornings: the most authentic street market in Madrid. El Rastro. It is a market tradition. The whole quarter of Rastro and Plaza de Cascorro wakes up full of things on street. The sellers differenced by areas show off incredible ancient things.

This rumenian couple made us stop for a long while bewitched
by bizarre songs and eastern energies

I always hesitate to take pictures of people, nut I suppose that some of them like it. It's even good for the business.

I love the light in this shot, and the expressions you caught on their faces. If you tell me he was playing "Beautiful Lady of Spain" on that accordian, I am going to crack up. As a child I was made to take lessons on that instrument, and that song is a standard tune every beginning player must learn.
