Mogarraz, Salamanca Province.

Mogarraz, Salamanca Province.
A very attractive village in the Sierra de Francia.
You can see some of the 600 or so portraits on the walls. These were the residents in 1967 who were photogrphed for an album and who later agreed to have their images placed on the houses / flats where they lived at that time. Some say 'spooky!', others say 'what a great idea!'
I am in two minds, but it IS different!

Ah-ha! You know the background to this, Nautilus!!!
(Did you go under a different name on Pano ? I don't remember your current name here!!)
But yes, you are correct. Risky! Even today this would cause problems if discovered!

A beautiful little village Andy.............I like the look of the houses and the warm colours. Is that your girlfriend in the foreground?

I'm not sure I'd want my ugly mug plastered all over the front of my house.............although I expect it would deter burglars. It's an interesting concept though and it would be fun to see a follow up to see how people had changed.

I hope you had a good weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead.

What a charming and beautiful village Andy. A nice idea but wouldn't be any good for me - I think I am allergic to being the wrong end of a camera!!

Well captured Andy

It's a brilliant idea, keeping the memory of former inhabitants alive! It would be spooky if that village was deserted now but it still seems inhabitetd.

I do love these villages - they are so pretty. As for the pictures on the houses - yes I do feel they are a bit spooky, but it's a nice gesture
