cotton in the field, eastern arkansas


I can see a cotton field
Old men working in the mill
I can see the load in the trunk of my old blue Oldsmobile
I see the tears in my mama’s eyes
When she kissed her baby goodbye
I can still feel all of that love from here
— Wynonna Judd sang that


a penny for your thoughts?

Time… but your processing makes this image feel timeless…

ah, the pathos of country music. I drive by similar fields in some of my eastern Carolina wanderings. Your processing evokes a timeless agrarian feeling.

OMG! I got so excited when I saw Wynonna Judd (let alone the cotton) and had to Google the song: I had the opportunity to hear Wynonna and Naomi in concert many times while living in Atlanta. Thanks for the memories!

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle,
In them old cotton fields back home;

It was down in Louisiana,
Just about a mile from Texarkana,
In them old cotton fields back home.

Oh, when them cotton bolls get rotten
You can’t pick very much cotton,
In them old cotton fields back home.

Très joli, on a l’impression que le ciel se reflète dans le champ.

If it wasn’t for the road’s rumble strip, that could be anytime.

Great long view and lovely cotton like clouds too.

A lot of work for people, little for a machine.

I have never seen a cotton field. This is beautiful! A gorgeous composition.

wow, imagine when people used to pick all that cotton by hand. That’s what i think of.
It’s another lovely photo.
I hope you make photo books with your photos, or print them out in some way.
