I’ve been taking photos of this particular belén (nativity scene) in the Atarazanas Market in Málaga for years. Usually the figures are nestled amongst the chiras (small clams) but on this day they were sold out, so they were perched on pulpo instead.

“And look!” one of the guys said to me, “We have a new addition this year! The three kings crossing a desert of prawns!” He was so excited and so was l. I will never stop loving this random humour and joy that exists here…
