A Break In The "Roll"

I spent last week on a photography assignment for the United States Department of Agriculture/Natural Resources Conservation Services  in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, shooting agriculture and all of its extensions. It was hot, humid, and sometimes rainy but a productive time. Thanks to all the NRCS staff who made the shoot a good one. A special thanks to Sarah Graddy, public affairs specialist, from Washington, D.C., who spearheaded the project.
