Tilling the Land


Not so many years ago, Mallorca was a predominantly agricultural society. Almonds, carob beans, oranges, apricots, wine and olives were the main crops, together with a bit of sheep farming and a cow here and there.

Today, all that has changed. Now, tourism is the big industry, whilst the land does not earn its upkeep any longer.

The photo today is a bit of a rarity in as much as you won’t find many people still tilling their land. I always get a kick when I see someone, mostly of the older generation, still taking care of soil, fruit or animals which, by the way, does seem to have a meditative quality to it.

The photo was taken near Costitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: January 24th, 2008. The time was 16:30:27.
