On the steps of the Museo Nacional del Prado

A woman adjusts her handbag on the steps of the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid. A couple have their photo taken in the background.
Large signs show the text "MANE en el Prado" and some dates. Two people enter the museum.

I remember visiting the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid and I loved it.

I visited Madrid in 2003 to stay with a good friend for a week. Back then, we only had rubbish 1mp cameras on our phones, if they had cameras at all. I had my Sony F717 with me and with a unique swivel body, 5MP sensor and 5X optical zoom I loved that camera.

Twenty years later and this photo is seeing the light of day. I love how ordinary this photo is. I wonder if that couple in the background is still together. Is the woman with the handbag still living in Madrid?
