This is how it's done... I've never used tobacco products nor grown it, but like it or not, tobacco was responsible for much of the wealth in our area, and its decline responsible for much of the loss of economic base. Also most of the derelict barns and sheds I have photographed are old tobacco barns.

    Yes, Don, I have another photo taken in winter when the red clay soil was even more apparent. Thanks for commenting!

    Thanks, Sarah! I've photographed this farm before, but it was so strung out it didn't look like much. The telephoto brings it up close!

    Like you, neither my husband or I plus our kids, have never used tobacco products. I feel bad for the farmers that are going into decline, but tobacco is so unhealthy for people, hopefully the farmers can turn to a different crop that is not toxic to people like tobacco is.

    Thanks for your input, Ann! Many local farmers are having success with wine grapes.
