There has to be something said for those adventurous enough to pick up and leave everything that is familiar to them in order to live another life in a different country; the La Cala de Mijas photo series captures just that. Many retired Brits find the call of Spain too hard to resist, deciding to enjoy the rest of their waning years in a perpetually hot climate.

Shot by photographer David Emery, the La Cala de Mijas photo series capture the juxtaposition of the people with their surroundings beautifully. As It's Nice That notes, "David’s images capture that ineffable spirit of Britishness; tanned to within an inch of orange and spruced up in their best white linen, his subjects look strangely familiar like a couple my nan would greet warmly at Bingo."
