Mesmerized

There’s something about a freshly seeded potato field in the Spring that I find very mesmerizing – the perfectly straight rows, laid out one after another after another.  When Mike and I went for a drive the other night with our cameras, we both found our eyes drawn to this field because it seemed to go on forever, and we both had the idea at the same time to stop and get some shots. We shot it wide:

And we zoomed in:

My friend, TBM, will know that the organizing side of me just loves how perfectly neat and straight these rows are 🙂 LOL

    Wow! I’ve never ever seen a seeded potato field! Mesmerizing for sure. Thanks for sharing.

    • You’re welcome, but wait a minute!! You’re a country girl now and you haven’t seen a potato field?!?! Do they not grow potatoes in your area at all? We are surrounded by potato farm here :).

  2. Love the second shot!!! Super lines!! 🙂 **

    I have a confession to make… When I read your opening lines, I thought, ‘potato fields…really?’, and then I scrolled down to your pictures… I love them! That first picture is gorgeous with the lines in different directions, and the green of the trees in the background. 🙂

  4. That’s so funny!! Years and years ago when I lived in the city, I would have thought it was crazy to think that a potato field could be mesmerizing, but now that I live in the country I can find beauty in pretty much anything with my trusty camera. Thanks for confessing :).

    When I was a kid there was a mom in our neighborhood who used a rake to make straight lines in the carpet after vacuuming. We knew never to walk on it. Do you do that 🙂

  6. Great lines and shadows in the furrows. These same shots will be nice too once they sprout.

  7. Cindy great photos – excellent photo eye. Thanks for sharing!
