Composition, bocadillos and scene-setting

 Composition. Legs, feet and shadow on the sand.

Among my favourite Spanish words is bocadillo. It refers to a sandwich but one usually consisting of a generous filling inserted in a crisp bread roll.  My favourite bocadillo filling?   Lomo, a slice of  freshly carved pork loin.

Every morning they set out tables and chairs, hoist sun shades, brush the pavement, ready for the day's entertainment. A gentle routine like setting up the scenery and props for the performance of a play.
