ABC WEDNESDAY--"W" is for "women workers"

Women workers....and winter, too. Those are my W's. This photo was actually taken last year, but it reminds me of a scene that was common when I first came here 35 years ago when you saw lots of field work by hand and horse, and few machines and tractors.

See other W's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

That's a huge field to be worked by hand. You have a great photojournalism picture there.

What a shot. It looks like something from the Soviet era or perhaps a photo taken in the 30s in the southwestern US.

This picture reminds me of Dorothy Lange's style.
So much hard work.

To echo previous comments, very much in the spirit of Life magazine and photojournalism of the mid-20th century. Be proud of this photo.

Love this! (I'm playing catch-up here, and just want to say that I've enjoyed all your latest posts (even if I was too busy to say so!).

Hate to say this, but it reminds me of pictures of North Korea.
