|A bale of cotton|
Clearly I exaggerated when I said cotton bales were the size of railroad cars. Unfortunately, there’s nothing in this photo that gives you any perspective, but they are BIG. I had difficulty getting this photo. Every time I drove through the field there was something going on– lots of big machines, people, trucks. I didn’t feel comfortable taking photos– like a tourist– of my neighbors working. And to tell the truth, this wasn’t the photo I wanted at all. I wanted a shot of the field I showed you the other day. It was the first picked.
