"This photo was taken mid-afternoon in one of the prettiest towns in Southern Spain. I was surprised to get a photo without people. Even though the day was quiet, it is rare to be alone in these narrow streets. Itís nice to capture moments of stillness, the road belongs to the flower petals, I love that."
