It was November 3, 2013, a Saturday. Prior to retiring for the evening before while on a visit to Morrilton, Arkansas, I hatched up the idea to shoot my way from the foothills of the Ozarks to the flatĀ  lands closer to home, wife, dogs and cats.

I made no plans other than the direction and destination, the Grand Prairie Rice Festival at Hazen AR, depending on finding subject matter along the way. As haphazard as it sounds, the formula normally produces a lot of photo ops. This time was no different.

The trip officially started at Vincent, Arkansas. My target there was St. Mary’s Catholic Church. From there I wandered southeast

toward Hazen. I stopped when a good subject popped up and took roads that looked promising. The trip produced a Duke’s mixture of barns, dogs, old gas burner engines and finally a combine harvesting rice before a predicted rain would postpone the harvest.

And be sure to see the pictures from the first part of the trip on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot-com.
