I hope she earns her daily bread selling the produce.
belle photo de vie rurale
Nice photo. And I do hope that the lady will have many customers.
You say incredible so I am assuming it is unusual to see people selling produce on the side of the road like this.
Nice capture, JM.
This woman doesn't look particularly spry so I wonder how she got all her merchandise together at that spot? It looks like a hard life to me.
@Joan Elizabeth: Yes, you are right, this shot seems to have been taken in the far countryside.
I had the same thought at Kate. I'm hoping that someone else sets up the fruit and vegetables and she just acts as cashier. Either way, it almost brings a tear to the eye.
What a complex shot, well done. An incredible range of colors and textures. It's sad that someone her age needs to do this, but it appears that she's lead a long life, so maybe it's not so bad.
@Kate and Sharon: I'm sure she's not alone in this business, someone had to drive her (and the boxes!) here, but I will ask her if I see her again.
I can imagine that Grandmother agreed to sit under the shade tree and take the money for the produce. I think she has a lot of help with this. And she can feel useful, contributing something to the family endeavors. Wish I could meet her.Margaret
That looks like a lot of work for a woman of Maria's age! I hope her grandson is helping her! Did you buy some peaches from her?
Wonderful shot JM, a real colourful 'slice of life' image!!
What a beautiful picture JM. She certainly has a wide variety to choose from!
Fruit and vegetables look yummy and I like the photo:)
A senhora parece cansada...espero que ela tenha conseguido vender algumas frutas!Bem diferente essa foto! :)Léia
Muita luta. Por cá vemos coisas assim também.
An interesting shot. I am sure this woman has some stories to tell.
This looks like something out of a 20th century history book...
A picturesque, wonderful mess!
I was wondering the same as some others; how did she get all that variety of fruit and vegetables there? I like to imagine she is from a lovely farm in the countryside. Love all the warm tones. An extremely rich image!
A fantastic image... I would love to buy some of her produce..Ireally don't like all the pre-packed washed and all the same size stuff.
Very enterprising. I wonder if she grows these fruits and veggies or she buys them from a farmer? She looks industrious and as though she's doing some sewing in between customers! Super photo!
wow , i like it !
What a terrific capture, JM! I hope she does well! Have a great evening!Sylvia
An incredibly tight and congested street corner, however I suspect she is located in just the right spot to get loads of potential custom.A lovely shot of someones daily life
A wonderful shot! She probably enjoys talking to all her customers. Hope she does have a lot of help.
Amazing shot. We see nothing like that in Sydney.
I hope someone helps her set up the store and cart the boxes at the end of the day.Lovely orangy autumn color.
Wonderful shot with at least one story... I hope that you will share more about her. Bises,Genie
Down to earth, well taken !
This is just a wonderful shot JM! You truly made wonders of bringing a single photo yet loading it with a thousands of emotions with a story! I was truly touched to see the old lady in this photo! If I was there I would have bought a lot of fruits and eat them at that same spot while chatting with her. Hope you post again about the lady! Steven^^
Amazing photograph, is that a puppy on her lap?
Now that's what I call a real road-side stall. Wonderful colourful reflections on the pavement and a wonderful older lady. I wonder what she is working at. a great shot!
This is a very touching scene and great capture!
I love this!!! I recently posted a market picture from here, but yours is so much more picturesque -- and the lady, the vendor, is just a remarkable study. Lovely post.
Foto comovente!Essa pobre senhora já tem idade para poder estar tranquila en casa!
You already know what a marvelous image this is, but just let me gush a little. Fantastic!!!!V
