The Weekly Photo Essay: Shadows Of El Carmen and the Old Town

Valencia Life’s resident photographer Paul Knowles made his way to the Old Town to capture the city as it awoke and streams of sunlight cast entrancing shadows upon its residents… 

“It’s my favourite time to photograph the city, the sunlight puts on a show of shadows and the city’s architecture looks its very best as it is slowly revealed by the sun,” says Paul. “Shadowy figures emerge into the beams of sun and add that extra air of mystery to the shots.’’
