#152 Solar Dryer

More harvest jobs...


After the grain is separated from the chaff, they must be dried to bring the moisture level down. In a tropical country like ours, the simplest way to do that is with the heat of the sun. Thus at harvest-time, rice grain is  laid out on sidewalks, roadsides, basketball courts, and in this case, a specially paved solar drying area. It will take two full days of strong sun before the grain can be bagged for storage. 

Which brings us to yet another job we discovered during the busy harvest season: grain dryers. Moist grain won't dry themselves, so there is work cut-out for the willing. A dryer's job is to haul sacked rice onto a drying area, pour them out and spread them thin to dry. Several times a day he'd have to turn the mounds over, and over, before finally sweeping-up every single grain by nightfall. Our journey to identify harvest jobs isn't over yet. Wait around a little longer, I've lined-up even more postcards featuring some less obvious ones. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: Raked grain form leading lines. Drawn to these geometric oddities, I saw this composition in my mind and immediately knew where I should be standing. The only hitch was that the human element was missing, until I spotted a farmer walking into my composition. Compose. Wait. Wait. Wait for his stride... Click.)
