    Reported by:

    After a long summer, people in Sicily move to the mountain. You go to pick mushrooms and chestnuts, and some farmers sell the products of their small plots of land on the mountain roads. Honey and apples, typical products of Etna.

    I'm predisposed to not like photos with the subject in the middle of the frame. Centering can provide a very powerful composition, but is overused by too many photographers who think they are being different. In this case it feels just right to have the farmer stand there, his head gently framed by the swirl of foliage. I love his matter-of-fact stance, as if he were letting the apples sell themselves.
