POTD: The Lotus Pickers

The Lotus Pickers
Nanjing, China
2018

This shot is just to provide some context for the dying lotus plant images I shot a lot of at Xuanwu Lake in downtown Nanjing. The whole south end of the lake was thick with lotus plants and there where at least three of these low jon boats out amongst them with crews of two or three people slowly dragging in and piling up layer after layer of plants using long poles.

    1. My impression was that they weren’t really harvesting, rather they were just doing the equivalent of raking the fall leaves to keep the plants from totally mucking up that end of the lake. They had a lot of work ahead of them.
