People Pictures – Cottage Industry

When it comes to taking pictures I like doors, statues, balconies and washing lines, Kim on the other hand likes people pictures so I thought I might share a few of them with you.

This one was taken in the Spanish village of Carmona in Cantabria…

Carmona is a delightfully quaint village with tiny cobbled streets with wild flower verges and where sunlight spilled into the dark corners of the workshops where traditional wood carvers were busy making customary products of cattle yokes, sandals, clogs, canes, and cutlery which, I am told, are distinctive to rural Cantabria.

I say that in a slightly cynical way because I got the impression that there isn’t really a great deal of tradition here and that whilst a man was busy whittling wood in an open barn for the benefit of the tourists there was probably a factory somewhere full of modern drills and lathes where the products for sale were being produced for sale to the coach loads of visitors who visit daily.

  4. Are you itching to take some trips yet? I imagine it’s still too early, though one can hope the vaccines help open up the world (or parts of it) before we all succumb to cabin fever!


  5. We are being treated to the best of each of you


  6. How do the locals earn a living and if it is from tourists how much trickles down to those who aren’t selling to tourists?


  7. The setting, I like.

    The guy looks … possibly dangerous.

    I seem to remember some of the photos in this and the linked post from a different post. But, I suppose after a while, every place begins to look the same.
