The moment I saw this photo, it conjured up reminders of the movie Sweet Land. You can feel this couple’s love for each other and the land, their hard work purely a way of life.
The couple is central to our focus, the woman’s hat and the wheelbarrow providing the most saturation in the image. The composition is framed with fencing and trees to the left and the top, giving the viewer a feel for the property’s expanse. As shadows climb onward to the right, we sense there is greater reach in this story.
This photo was taken by the couple’s son, Paul Esson. Thank you for sharing your work with creative commons – you captured a lovely moment!
