Madrid

Place de Major (Mayor). Huge in the evening light. With few people about, voices and laughter still echo across this massive square - easy to imagine its bars, cafes and restaurants over-flowing in the warmer days. Salt to stop the payment freezing is still in evidence. The passive statue for King Phillippe dominates this space. All is relatively black except for window lights and archway colonnades spilling golden light onto the stones.
