Lean on me

I believe that the diminutive gentleman holding to the arm of the taller, younger gentleman walking beside him, is that younger man's father. I think I see the family resemblance. It's my story and I'm sticking to it. Also I like the trio occupying the bench to the left. Are the ladies sisters, with the husband of one enduring their company? Or are they all siblings? (I doubt that on account of, the lean-in angle of the lady on the left suggests something other than brother-sister.) Either/or, the body language of both women towards the man suggests a tight-ish bond regardless of the relationship. And the lady walking towards the building? She's a no-nonsense type. In a good way. The landscaping and architecture are stunning.
