A short diversion for a summer evening..

I love these photos posted on the Denver Post photo blog including this great one of the peach harvest in western Colorado done with horse power.

"These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations."

There are 60 or so more at the link above, so take a look!
