Photo's that never see the light of day - Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

Today's "Photos that never see the light of day" are from a bit of a random town in Spain where we stopped very briefly for one night between Bilbao and Barcelona. We chose to stop in Vitoria-Gasteiz for no other reason than they apparently have the largest deck of playing cards in the world (!). Unfortunately having arrived, found a hotel, parked our car and checked in - we then discovered the museum where the cards were displayed was closed for renovations. We were devastated. OK not really. But given there was not much else to do we resorted to wandering the (slight scary because it is a heavily political town in Basque country) back streets.

Out of this came one of my favourite photos of our holiday.....

What is it I hear you ask? It was actually a mural on the side of a building which I "slightly" altered in photoshop.

And despite the age old rule that a magician never reveals their secrets -i will let you see mine - before photoshop photo below....

(small confession - the altered photo does actually see the light of day on my kitchen wall, my parents kitchen wall, a friends house..... but thought i would share it with you anyway!)
