These men were playing a game called Bitlles. It’s a local Catalonian game where you throw a wooden pin towards other pins. The more of the pins you hit the better. It’s almost like a mixture of Petanque and Bowling.
I couldn’t talk to them but I think it’s easier to take public portraits if all you can do is point to the camera and get eye contact.
They were really nice men. If I look that friendly when I’m 70/80-ish I’m really happy.
