Harvest Time


The cold weather is making an appearance now in South Carolina.  It got me thinking about autumn passing and a series I shot here a while ago on John’s Island of farmers harvesting pole beans. Pictured here is Arturo, who was kind enough to allow me to photograph him as he examined the beans and filled the bags. The pole beans were colorful, the day was bright and the company a pleasure.
