The worn and peeling walls with their warm but fading colours combine perfectly with the  beauty of this portrait.

      1. Didn’t strike me as a huge amount when I was there, but looking back at my images, I think you’re right. Not on Shoreditch scale, but plenty of good stuff around. I’ve made a list of things to do when (I hope) I get back and finding more street art is on that list!

      2. Our local guide booked for us – only the day before and had to be lunch not dinner. I was very surprised that we got in! And very pleased 😀

    1. Me too. It was my camera that got me out wandering and being observant. I am amazed at the quality and variety of street art. And to achieve such perfection while perched on a ladder or dangling from scaffolding is even more stunning. Especially for Mrs Vertigo!

    1. You’re right there – many SD cards, and a good hard drive for daily backups. I came back with over 5000 images! And the raw shots are 24Kb-84Kb each depending on which camera they come from. I’m glad data isn’t heavy!!

  1. 5000 shots! what a treasure! I wonder how much time it takes you to sort them out :-). mural is beautiful as well as both pictures each with its live element.

    1. It takes me forever I think! Quite a few were moving classic cars and several can be discarded immediately.

      It was just a wonderful country. With a bit of everything.
