12A great sense of humour
Look at the two men smiling. I have a feeling they are joking with the photographer. – A Sami sledge – and a young cow (calf) wearing the harness – instead of a reindeer. I wonder if the calf would get very far with a heavy load in the snow. The location is Sirma, Tana, Finnmark, Norway. Hand-coloured photo.
Haymaking, the Sami way. Probably lifted from the ground so that the animals can not get to it. The structure is called a «luovvi» – and is also used for the storage of food etc. Kautokeino, Finnmark, Norway.
