    Hi,

    These photos where taken in a very small village near Bragança in Portugal, like many other in Portugal it's really affected by desertification, the lack of work and opportunities made almost all of the young people leave to major cities in pursuit of a better life leaving a lot of houses abandoned behind them as the older people past away.

    Enjoy.

    Taken with the E-PL5, 14 and 20 .

    It's not my work Gerard, but it wouldn't mind if here mine.
    These are very good photos from a fellow countryman.

    My reply was a compliment to both of you.
    You both share a similar style. A style that appears to me :)

    Great photos of a lovely part of the world. Played a gig in Braganca a few years ago. The police came in to stop us playing, something to do with a neighbouring bar that was empty phoning them to complain about the noise. Still wish we'd stopped to get a photo of the signpost to the village on the outskirts called Babe :)
