It’s rice planting season again. My co-workers actually finished planting their rice paddies last week and I couldn’t photograph it since it rained last Friday. If I had known about a rainsleeve then I could have photographed the rice paddy in the rain, this could have been interesting. I read about the rainsleeve at Scott’s blog post Rainy Days and Photography recently.
Scott is also having an online auction offering a special print of his for people to bid on to raise funds for his Relay for Life team in support of cancer research by the American Cancer Society. AUCTION ENDS: Monday, June 6, 2011 at midnight US Eastern Daylight Time, check out his Bridge of Hope Online Auction post for more detail.
So this is the second week of rice planting and I got there about the same time as my co-worker. She had a big bucket of fertilizer and they looked like little salt rocks. The rice paddies smell so nice and I regret that I didn’t bring my telephoto zoom lens to photograph the dragonfly.
It was hot and humid, I was surprised to see her wore a Lao sinh since she’s Hmong. She was fertilizing her rice paddy below.
