DVC - Frias, Spain 7/1990Photo by fellow ITC photographer Craig Farmer. Scan from original BW 35mm Ilford HP5 negative negative. As I recall, this is pretty much the location that I took the picture of the "suspended castle".
I've been to Spain twice. Once in 1977 in the springtime after finishing up in College and the other in the summer of 1990. I took the night train from Paris to Madrid. I stayed a couple of blocks away from the Prado and made several visits there. I then went to Barcelona (by train, of course! I had a Eurailpass) for several days before continuing my tour of the continent -- back to France. The second time to Spain I was working as a photographer in the nuclear industry and had a shoot in the north of Spain in Basque country. After we finished the shoot (Santa maria de garona for you nuclear buffs) we went to Madrid for a couple of days. The museo de Jamon was STILL there.
