LEFT: 5/1/10 at the Tate Modern in London in a room of the van Doesburg exhibit near some works by Walmar Schwab.
About 3 minutes after I left this one, I actually watched a museum employee take the photo, look at it, then walk away with it...

And here's what it looked like before I drew on it:

FOUND! 5/30/10 by Ana who writes:
I've found one of your pictures in the toilet of a Lebanese resto, close to Grand Place! :p I don't really remember the number (I had nothing to note it down at the time :p), but I think it was 329.... It was the picture of either a bungalow or a cottage.

I left it there. Hope someone else also finds it and plays the game.

I'm a book crosser myself, and I also used to participate in postcard crossing. So I've found your project really interesting. Hope it's giving you feedback and that it helps your artistic carrer.
It was a great place to "hide" it. I just saw it yesterday, so it must still be there! :D

Good luck
