Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location or what it is. If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog, when the answer is revealed, the following Monday.
Guest Submissions are very welcome!
Please note that I will release comments in the latter part of each week, usually Thursday or Friday, Australia time, and in this way, everyone can have a guess without a spoiler being revealed prematurely.
This Week’s Monday Mystery Photograph
I am throwing out a difficult challenge this week.
The following photo was snapped, of me, in recent times, with a slightly dishevelled soldier from a historical re-enactment group that is pertinent to his locality. Do you have an idea of the location for this military group, based on his costume, or even hidden elements in the photo? (-if you are a super sleuth!)
The correct country is sufficient for this week’s answer.
Last week’s Monday Mystery Photograph
Last week’s photo was located on the road to El chorro, north of Malaga, Andalucia in Spain.
This hermitage is located at the old village of Bobastro. It was renovated late last century at which time they discovered a series of tombs carved into the rock. There is also remains of a watchtower, known as Moro Rock, indicating the historic importance of the site. As an aside, it seems that cross religo-cultural forces interplayed here, as the festival of Moors and Christians were celebrated here until the 1920’s. A pilgrimage mass of the Virgen de Villaverde, is still celebrated here.
The following bloggers identified the photograph’s location correctly in Spain:
Some narrowed down the location even further:-
and some further still:-
Impressive knowledge everyone. Well done!
Will you guess this week’s photograph?
