Index Words:  haystack, snow, sheep
Place:  Romania
Notes:  ^^^ McLaughlin's caption is eloquent but ambiguous: 'Villagers complain that shepherds are lazy. While most peasants must break their backs making hay in the hot days of summer, shepherds lie on the hillsides watching their grazing sheep. No one complains about them in winter.' But the winter sheep depend on the summer haymakers.

Index Words:  haystack, boy, fork
Place:  Romania
Notes:  ^^^ This superb image of a young man forking hay from one stack of hay to another (or perhaps to a load on an unseen wagon) is one of dozens taken by McLaughlin in 1999 and 2000 as part of a project entitled 'The Color of Hay.' Few are as much about hay as is this one, in which the boy is suspended between the crisply textured hay and the storm clouds. The blur at the end of his fork conveys the energy of his activity. McLaughlin's caption is as elementally poetic as the image: 'The quality of a haystack can be told by its color. The quality of a man by the time it takes him to bring one home.' ('Calitatea unei capite se vede dupa culoarea ei. Calitatea unui barbat dupa timpul cat ii ia sa o aduca acasa.'

Notes:  McLaughlin's caption blurs our distinction between hay and straw. The sheaves of oats are stacked around a pole to dry, but this is not their only resemblance to hay. The villagers thresh their oats crop after a couple of weeks at the local watermill, but then they feed the grains, considered unfit for people, to their pigs, cows and draft horses.
