Benidorm : land of mobility scooters and cheap beer.

Spain seems to lend itself to street graffiti such as this example on the side of a building in Denia. The buildings tend to have concrete canvas sides and there is a tradition of graffiti which is decorative rather than self-promotional. And for photographers, they present endless opportunities to frame and selectively enlarge.
