Wow! That brings back memories of North Carolina. This is a very familiar scene from my early years.

When I was a child, there was a neighbor in London who grew tobacco in his garden and dried it in a spare bedroom. I remember it only for the day it caught fire . . . funny how a picture can trigger thoughts.

@Ronnie 2¢: I totally agree!

This is America, as we used to see this country through the pictures of Paul Strand or Walker Evans ....

@Gérard Beullac: I agree. These places are disappearing very fast.

We use to cultivate tobacco in Belgium (for pipe) but the drying barn are quite different.
Pretty good composition and B&W

Great capture of this barn with the beautiful tones in the wood exterior!! I love the vintage feel with your B&W processing as well. I can only imagine what it smells like inside.

Love the B&W - it gives it such a classic old time feel. I also like the way you captured the entire barn, but also gave us a look at the tobacco drying.

Nice tones in the wood and surprising detail in the shaded tobacco leaves. The only problem is those unattached details of utility poles and wires intruding at the right edge.

Yet to be told by the fact that in Finland has grown tobacco. "Around the corner" grown referred to as the "kessu", "Sarge".
