A bronze guy working hard

Oh... Monday, back to work... but I guess some people don't have even a minute to take a break and relax themselves... just like this bronze sweeper guy in the middle of Jacinto Benavente square!
I like this place a lot, what do you think about the buildings there? It's Madrid downtown! I wish I could own a house like that someday...
Hey have a great start of the week! :)

Lunes... de vuelta al trabajo... pero mira, hay gente que ni siquiera puede tomarse un descansito y relajarse por un rato... como este pobre barrendero de bronce en medio de la plaza de Jacinto Benavente!
Me gusta mucho este sitio, las casas... ¡Así es el centro de Madrid! Cómo me gustaría tener algún día una de esas...
¡Buen comienzo de semana! :)

I like this small square and I love the old building but they are very expensive for reconstruction!
Anyway I prefer the center of the town and not the suburbs.

Where you live now might be best. There are so many expenses related to home ownership. It is a never ending battle.

I like the bronze sculpture. Do they still sweep the streets there?

Almost all of our statues show important people relaxing. For some strange reason most of them are sitting on a bench. The technique works well for locals to take there photo setting next to important people from our past.

Bellísima foto. Los edificios son muy bellos pero lo que me fascina es la estatua del empleado municipal y el ángulo de la foto. Muy buena!

Denton, I know what you mean. Here we also have sculptures like that. It's funny to take a photo in that way uh?

Another working class hero… Would you really like to live downtown if you could pick anyplace? Cities are fun and exciting but I’d rather live outside…

Per I really would love to!

I like the statue a lot--it's much more interesting when they are doing something. And it looks like downtown Madrid has beautiful old buildings, it's no wonder you dream of owning a place there!

Thanks for all your comments today--I really appreciated them. I'll be back to see Madrid and I hope you will come see Chicago again too.

This has to be one of your best photos, at least in my opinion. I love this square, the beautiful colours and architecture of the buildings at the back, and the excellent sculpture in the foreground. And you captured it at a quiet time when it would be very natural to have someone sweeping the street.

A GREAT CATCH!

And the statue... wonderful!!! So funny!

Thank you so much nathalie, you're right, it was a really quiet moment because it was almost 9 in morning of a Sunday!
Thank you Monica and Ps!

Hello, I found your blog thru Bostonscapes (Fenix's seleccion of remarkable photography).

It is true, this photo is truly remarkable. I'd love to see it in person.
