Photographer's Note

The place.
When I visited Madrid there was an event called San Isidro Festival.

San Isidro (San Isidro Labrador) is the patron saint of the peasants and laborers and is also the patron saint of Madrid. Tradition has it that on May 15th the people of Madrid are to make a pilgrimage to San Isidro's meadow to celebrate his day and to drink the holy water of his fountain in his hermitage's patio. Madrid's biggest "fiesta" (party) is celebrated yearly starting on the Friday before the 15th and running until the following Sunday, 9 days of Saintly jubilee throughout the Comunity of Madrid. Many revelers still dress up in the traditional garb of the "ιpoca" (period) called "Chulapo or Chulapa" (Men are "Chulapos" and women "Chulapas") which is Madrid's national dress. "Chulapa/o" comes from the word "Chulo" which means "a bit full of oneself" or "very dapper" and since the Madrileρos (those from Madrid) are the most "dapper", the name stuck. They pride themselves on being true Madrileρos and the men wear a checkered cap, waistcoat and handkerchief around their necks while the women's getup is composed of fancy lace ridden dresses complete with a headress and "Mantσn" (elegant wrap around shawl).
I made some nice picture from the dressed young Madrileρos. You can see here the first.

The picture
The boy headed to the church with his family but he escaped for a minute and examined the door and a the fence from closer.
I followed his action from the other side of the street with big smile!
