Only in Spain?

A Spanish friend recently emailed me a series of photos by a photographer who goes by the name of Jafotillo. Her message to me read, "Estas fotos solo podrían estar hechas en España." (These photos could only have been taken in Spain.) I don't how accurate my friend's statement is, but some of the pictures are very funny. I've posted the ones I found the most amusing below, accompanied by my own translations and/or explanations.
