Purple Hull Pea Harvest



I spent part of the morning shooting Bossier Parish inmates picking buckets and buckets of purple hull peas in northern Bossier Parish that are used to feed the inmate population.

I had to smile when I overheard one of the inmates sweating in the sun say, "I hate peas, then Germain Smith told me, "this is my 15 minutes of fame" as I shot a photo of him silhouetted in the hot sun. But the best was a comment from another inmate a few rows over who said, "they feed us too much bologna."
