Palermo Portrait

October 30, 2010

 I had just finished taking his photo when he put his knife down, beckoned me closer, and requested that we take a photograph together. And here it is. One of my favorite pics from that Palermo trip. Perhaps even one of my favorites of myself since arriving in Sicily. A fish seller with a big knife, Noah seated formally beside us, muddy fish guts under our feet, a charming, gritty, friendly encounter in the market. I love these kind of moments.

And isn't a photograph with a big knife perfect for Halloween? It's not every day that I get to take a picture with such a big knife or such a friendly fish seller or come to think of it such a willing seven year old son. Happy Halloween from Sicily!
