Countryside series V : Back to the past

One of the most cliché shots of Westerners on holidays in less developped countries : a farmer pushing a fully loader cart of food or goods. Yet this one happened in France, somewhere in a road leading to the gigantic Gorges of Verdon. Modernity and the race to productivity at any cost hasn’t reached every single place in this country, which is good news.  Note that the shot was taken with one hand on the camera and one the steering wheel, not the best way to frame ;)   (click on picture to enlarge)
