Photographer's Note

Working, yes. Working wicker.
This woman has more than 70 years and she is working.

Try to imagine how is the life in this kind of villages, as Quintanilla del Coco.
Old people need make something. If not, you would have a really boring life. Then is necessary be an active or lively man or woman.
But when you are an old person perhaps is not easy make a long walk at the evenings. Then you can do another kind of activities.

And that’s what you can see in this shot and also you will see in anothers photos.
This woman is making a wicker basket.
Is something traditional from this place.
All natural.

The woman (nowadays you’re going to see only her hand... in a few days you’ll see the woman) was placed in a little room. The door of the room gives directly to the street and she only works when still has natural light (in that room there is no electricity).

And someday, was obvious, you’ll see the place where is that room.

Until then, I hope you like it.

(in two days a new photo about this woman, but tomorrow... no)
