Rural Life – Bulgaria.
Camera Nikon D700 with 28-300mm Nikon Lense. ISO 200, f/9.0, 1/125th sec, 98mm, handheld.
On a trip into the Blue Mountains of Bulgaria, we spotted this man with his donkey cart in the heat of the day. The donkey was obviously thirsty and stopped for a drink at the village fountain. We’d all been told the waters were from a healing stream:-) LOL
It’s amazing when you sit back and soak up the atmosphere of a village like this that’s been relatively untouched by modern ways, there were are few cars in the village, but they were ancient. But when I spotted this man with his donkey and cart walking slowly up through the narrow lanes I was transported instantly to simple times and what must have been a much more peaceful but hard way of life. The donkey really is a beast of burden.
