Just a picture of watering cans. BUT, I find the contrast between the two images a bit of a metaphor for the latest human condition. A few and everything is neat and tidy, an influx of newcomers and everything goes to rack and ruin. (ooooh risky)
Sea salt pans fed by Esteiro de Maria Nova in Portugal (close to Faro and Parque Natural da Ria Formosa). We visited in mid September, you wouldn’t want to walk far without a hat (if you can keep it on your head in the wind) or without a bottle of water, let alone in the height of the summer – I doubt evaporation is a problem.
You know when you do stuff and the instant you do it you know you shouldn’t – well, I bent down to pick up one of the fruits that had fallen – oops! It was just one of things – no real hassle in my case, as my daughter was on hand with a pair of tweezers and quickly pulled the needles from the tips of my fingers, but I can imagine circumstances might be a little different if I had happened to be a little one.
