Great Royaldevon 2019-08-01 0:48

Hello Gert,

Like you, my immediate thought was this looked like a Biblical image, Palm Sunday without the palms.
Then, on closer examination, it reminded me of one of the many charity adverts we see, asking for money to prevent cruelty to animals; there is one specific charity for relief from cruelty for donkeys and this could be a good image for that!

But, as I often say to you, this is a photograph of great interest, revealing so much about the area, how the people dress and behave. Your sepia treatment was a master stroke, giving a greater sense of age to this well scanned photograph.

My warm regards,
Bev 😊

Default To Royaldevon: cruelty to animals

Thank you Bev for your kind comments. I didn't know about that special charity, but without knowing really what kind of load a donkey could carry, this man looks far too heavy for that poor animal.
Kind regards,
Gert
