Update: the power of positive thinking

I have the evidence!  The photos below show the undying spirit of Miss Camilla and all of the positive energy she received in producing this permanent exhibition in the alleyway, Beco das Farinhas. Originally defeated by the frustration of her initial plan not working, she kept on keeping on and found another creative solution to get the images on the Beco walls, to the delight of her elderly neighbors and passersby.  The brush strokes you see in the photos is photographic emulsion that she coated on poster board and then ‘exposed’ in her darkroom to develop the print.  From there it got plastered on the decaying yet incredibly picturesque walls of the alleyway and is there to stay, until the elements and time wear it away.  Congrats, Camilla!
