Another of my little conversation pieces. Not much to say about it really, apart from the unselfconscious wearing of traditional dress for everyday wear.

Hello Will,
A delightful black and white street portrait. I like the heightened interaction between the two ladies.

Hello Will,

Wonderful picture in black and white, a pity that you not place a colour picture in WS, specially for the nice traditional clothes.
I like the lace decorative motives on the clothes of the lady.
A lovely composition nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS

Best regards,

Hello Will,

THis is an excellent b&w shot and looks even better on Beta, where every detail of the bench and the two ladies is pin-sharp.
The light and shadows are so effective in aiding the 'mood'.
I can't help but become involved in the narrative.
I want to know what is ailing the older lady!
There is a well captured connection between the two!

Great street photography without affecting the participants in the story.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Will

Il y a toujours quelque chose à apprendre de quelqu'un qui a plus d'expérience que nous. La jeune fille semble écouter avec attention. Tu a réussi à leur garder une certaine intimité. Beau noir et blanc.



Dear Will,

Another fine piece of your conversation series. Just like in the case of the other ones, the BW conversion enhances the somehow timeless mood, they really don't like being in a hurry.

Best Wishes,

Hello Will,

I like this image, the atmosphere you captured here with the two women talking, well done,

Best regards,


Hello Will,
Another fine one from your unassuming but pleasant series of conversations. They are all by definition quiet and discreet photos, in this case enhanced by the traditional clothes and the nicely designed benches. Maybe it's mainly the clothes and benches that make this look a lot older than not even five years.
Kind regards,

Hello Will

A fine off hand street shot. What I like most is the expression of the woman at the back. Difficult to pinpoint what it really is, but it just looks very typical in a way.


Olá Will,
bonita composição com as senhoras a conversar. A escolha pelo P&B foi acertada em minha opinião. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Hi Will
Great people framed image as they chat together! admire your ability to capture a good candid shot as you have done here. They are totally oblivious of your activity, I'm sure, resulting in a very natural look, a contained intimate feel in a such a peaceful ambience. Lovely observation, cropped to good effect,
PS Thks to your extra info about the adventurous writer and his works - my pleasure
Best regards

Hello Will
Simple composition on which comes to the fore texture of these wonderful benches and traditional clothing of these ladies.
Would be interesting to see this picture with colors.
Fine photos from Sevilla.
Kind regards

Hi Will

You have a good subject with the chatting couples taken in the wordl and converted in B&W. Gipsies?
Have a nice WE


Ciao Will

Yes, their costume was the first thing that caught my eye. Excellent choice the B&W, accentuating the sense of timelessness and the nostalgic feel created by the dappled light. The intricate details of the wrought iron bench are another very compelling element.

Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

Ciao Will, lovely composition with nice couple on bench, fine details, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
