Probably could have called this "sea of backs" just as easily – but that just occurred to me.

Some days the strawberry pickers are even more jammed in than this – but this gives a good isolated view.

No matter how hot it seems – most pickers where a minimum of sweatshirt weight clothing. Placing these textured material looking colors was not where I took liberties.

The color coordinated clothing, however, represents the likeness of the pickers from a distance – remarkably bent – looking much like a herd – and diligently working for hours in this uncomfortable position.

Despite witnessing the hard lifestyle, it is also a witness to something beautiful.
