    pretty cool, do all tobacco plants have those flowers on top at some point in growing or are those plants to be made in to Acids??

    Sorry, I'm not up on tobacco growing.
    I just noticed these while driving by and snapped a few photos.

    The thought has crossed my mind to ask one of the farmers to sell me a couple of stalks, so I could try my hand at fermenting / blending / rolling, but I'm way too busy to add another hobby, and I'm sure that one would be require a high commitment to do well.

    I remember my dad talking about working my uncle's farm. You dont want the plant to waste energy producing seeds. You would leave a small section of the crop to grow seeds for the next harvest and the rest would be cut. They would walk down the rows and snap off the flower stalks.

    How did you resist the urge to strip down and run a few laps through them?

    Great composition with the pix as well. Looks like someone knows how to apply the rule of thirds.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I used to think about principles of composition, like the rule of thirds, etc., but nowadays, those things are mostly subconscious for me.

    This situation was a little tricky, because the plants were pretty tall. The first image in my OP was shot from around eye level. For the other two, I had to hold the camera high over my head.
