East of Vancouver in the Fraser Valley, and south of Vancouver in Richmond, the soil is fertile, rendering these areas the ‘breadbasket’ of Vancouver. I have always been drawn to scenes of agriculture and of people at work. In the muted glow of the evening light the throwing of cabbages seemed like a wonderful photo opportunity.

As I was putting my camera away, one of the workers came closer, cut a large cabbage, and handed it to me to take home.
