This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel
The number of French farming villages has dwindled, a consequence of mechanization, increasing job opportunities in cities, and other factors. Many traditional villages continue to struggle, surviving solely because of tourism.
Photo Tip: Chat up the locals in small-town diners and cafés, and tell them you’re looking for a farm to photograph. An invitation may result more readily than you’d expect.
