salve!

Here's a photo I took some time ago while on holidays. 10 points belong to anyone who can tell me the country in which it was taken.

is it a photo of a photo? perhaps in a museum somewhere, probably one in australia??? That's my guess

Mathea wins! yes, it's in Australia, but it's not in a museum. It was out the front of a hotel I stayed at in New Norcia, Western Australia. New Norcia is a funny place- it was founded by a group of Spanish monks in the mid nineteenth century, and is still a working monastery. All the buldings look like they're straight out of Spain, and, since it was founded by catholic monks, there's a lot of Latin around. It was a great place, but weird to see all this European style architecture surrounded by gum trees.
