Behind the Scene
I took this image in one of the first photoshoot walk I did after confinement in Madrid. I was meeting the "A la calle" group of friends that decided to gather in different cities the same day. I had my Fuji XT4 and a Fujinon 35mm f1.4 fixed lens.
I decided to go on my own and ended up in Plaza Mayor. The place was quite lonely as many bars had to close. But this is a big terrace and bar with different locals and in one of them at the late time of the afternoon, I saw the two waiters, in what if looked like a break, or just waiting for some customer to be seated.
The thing is that I loved how they looked and did not have much time to change my lens of think about the composition, so I just shot a few times and crossed my fingers.
