On our drive over to the Van Duzen bridge, Melissa and I both noticed the big field of mustard near Fernbridge. I had wanted to use the field before but could never find the time or a model before they plowed it. So while it was still in full bloom we scheduled a second shoot. Since I generally prefer to get the owner’s permission when planning a shoot on private property, I called the owner and asked him. Turns out they didn’t plant the mustard, which surprised me because earlier this year they carefully plowed and tilled the plot. I figured maybe the mustard was planted as a cover crop. Actually he was trying to grow grass (not the type that Humboldt is famous for). He was actually pretty upset that the field keeps coming back with mustard after all his efforts to get rid of it. So he was pretty open to us doing anything out there that we wanted. We did see a bit of grass amongst the mustard, but the mustard grows a lot faster and choked most of the grass out. People noticed us out in the middle of this huge field of mustard while driving on the highway and later that week we fielded questions from people asking if that was us out there. I guess people have caught on to what I love taking pictures of.
