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 :).
Love the second shot!!! Super lines!! 🙂 **
I know – I could just stare at a field like that forever. I’m glad you liked it too :).
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. 🙂
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 🙂
LOL!!! I knew you wold see that last sentence! And no, I am not quite as bad as that lady, although I do love the freshly vacuumed look 🙂
Great lines and shadows in the furrows. These same shots will be nice too once they sprout.
Thank you and what a great idea!! I will have to get my hubby to take me back there in another week or so 🙂
Cindy great photos – excellent photo eye. Thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome and thank you so much for visiting and for the wonderful comment :).
Just so beautiful…..
Thank you! As someone suggested, I need to go back there and take more pictures as the crops are probably growing now, and it would be a nice comparison.
Then I will be waiting for more photos!
