Barns and Tobacco Wagons


I pass by so many barns on my way to work each morning.  I saw this one Friday, surrounded by fog, low light, and cows.  What a perfect photo.  Stuck behind a school bus, I still didn't have time to reach for my cell phone and I certainly didn't have my DSLR with me.  Today I passed it and slowed down to take a photo.  No traffic behind me, ( I use the word, "traffic", loosely.), and terrible light gave me this shot.  I still like it, though.  


Workers have been in the tobacco fields early each morning.  On the way to work, Friday, most of a field had already been harvested.  That was at 7:20am, Eastern Time.  

Whew.....



Linking up with The Barn Collective today.

  1. Nice shot of the barn. It looks a pale blue.
    I like the picture of the field too.

  2. ...the nice thing about taking pictures of the same barn is that each time the light is different. Sometimes everything is just the way you want it or it's not. I'm amazed that there is still a demand for tobacco. Thanks Michelle for sharing, I hope to see you back again.

  5. That was an early day, they may have been worried about rain and got on it hard.

  6. I like the shot, too. We once lived in Tennessee and had a tobacco allotment we leased out. Those are hard working farmers!

  8. Aren't you glad they invented smart phones with good cameras built in? I don't know what I'd do without my iPhone 7 plus! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  12. Better to take the photo and work with what you get. Sometimes that can work wonders. I sometimes take photos through a bus window and most are crappy but there is always that good one and then it was worth it. Your barn and field photos look grand.
    Enjoy your day!

  14. Farmers can do the equivalent of a day's work before we're even up and about 😀 it's so frustrating when you find yourself unable to take that incroyable shot Michelle, I like the feel of both your images here.

  17. Yes, summer is winding down and most of the fields have been stripped of their bounty. I have never met a boring barn. :)
