This is a wonderfully composed photograph. So much texture and the fence and wagon and car just lead us into the scene. Love the hat on the knee.

Great photo

I immediately thought of the Grapes of Wrath when I saw this, but they appear to be happy.

Oh, Dee, please tell us something about this photo! Who are these men and boys, where do they live, what might they have been doing before the photo was taken. When was it taken? It really is fabulous!

They look remarkably at ease. Lunch break?

From Alan : The picture seems to share that element with this weeks' theme picture of being "informally posed". In both cases it was either luck - or quite creative stage management.
