Farming In Miniature

Some may recall that last October I put up some of my photographs at a local ‘Expo’ of hobbies and ‘passions’. One of the displays was a table-top homage to agriculture – still the main form of activity around here- including these models of agricultural machinery. Whether they are toys for children or adults I leave it to you to decide.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Progress

Out here in the French countryside, many things are still done as they have been for generations – working off the lunar calendar, for example. However, the local farmers are by no means averse to using technology to make their life a bit easier.

So the horses have been put out to grass and the heavy work is now done with tractors. And that’s progress.

Just ask the horse.

Fallow Ground

Five minutes walk down the road from here is this field, which last year had a late crop of maize. This year it’s been left fallow, but this is what it looked like in January.
