This shot was taken in Villa Luisita, a 19th-century house on the outskirts of Cortegana near Huelva in southern Spain. We were spending a few days in the countryside. At the end of the day, the summer light changes continuously and the activities around the house get a different significance every minute.
A little before sunset, while there is still light, we always have to collect the geese and the clothes that are drying in the sun. The most difficult thing is to convince the children to stop playing and get into the cottage to have dinner and rest after a long summer day. Their shadows seem to linger a little on the colored walls to make the sunlight last longer. —Miguel Parra
