After the wedding this weekend, I’m back in the swing of things today after driving back to Peoria from Indiana at 7:45 a.m. this morning. When I got to work, my boss asked me to shoot something to go with an upcoming business story about the harvest. It was kind of an open-ended assignment where I could shoot something related. I talked to the reporter who pointed me towards an area northwest of town where one of his contacts was combining corn. I headed out and eventually found the group working a 70-acre field. The guys were pretty nice and allowed me to ride in the combine for a few passes through the field. I’ve never ridden in combine before so it was an interesting experience. I was kind of surprised how high tech the inside of the combine is with GPS and yield monitoring screens.
