Mississippi Delta #3

Sharkey County, Mississippi

Flat, open land inspires a minimalist esthetic. I like this kind of landscape, perhaps because it is so different from the rolling hills and mountains that surround me day-to-day. I like the lines and light, the shapes and textures of the Mississippi Delta. Often simple things have the most power to stir our memory.

I like this picture because I remember standing on the side of that dirt road on a late summer afternoon as the rain scented air rustled around me. I can almost smell it.
