Photo challenge #48- Mine- Miniera

Miner in Sardinia

The prompt was ‘mine,’ so I published a miner from Sardinia. I took this photo from a photograph of a family in Sardinia taken in the 60s. I was told by this man’s wife (in this picture) that when they were dating, she would go to the mine to meet him, but she didn’t recognize him. No wonder! Times were tough then.

Il suggerimento era "mio", ma potrebbe anche essere miniera. Quindi ho pubblicato un minatore dalla Sardegna. Ho preso questa foto da una fotografia di una famiglia in Sardegna scattata negli anni '60. Mi è stato detto dalla moglie di quest'uomo (in questa foto) che quando uscivano insieme, lei sarebbe andata in miniera per incontrarlo, ma non lo riconosceva. Ci credo! I tempi erano duri allora.

When I was a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods followed by my six cats and two dogs.
