As one drives through the Windsor, CT area either on I-91 or Rt 20, one can see the long, narrow, faded red tobacco sheds along side their field. Tobacco has been grown in CT since the 1800s and there is still about 2000 acres farmed today. The leaves grown here are primarily used in the wrapper, or outer layers of cigars. CT’s tobacco is considered a premium variety, so the farming of this controversial crop continues.
I’ve always loved old barns and run-down/weathered buildings, and today I decided to shoot for a few minutes from near the road (I didn’t want to trespass too bad). I decided to use my ‘nifty fifty’ or Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens to force me to think in new ways while shooting.
