[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Fruit Whisperer speaks the language of kiwanos and carambolas, of horned melon and maracuya. He may be a Tar Heel in a Food Lion draped in gaudy fluorescence, but when his cart turns down Aisle One, he enters the luscious dimension of fruit.

Completely bizarre but really cool!
Good composition and placement of your subject, great expression from him - good metering and very sharp considering, I would guess, this is a hand-held shot at a slow shutter speed.
I love your choice of location.

Hi Hugh,
Great portrait and nice title. The glance of the 'wishperer' is wonderful captured in this photo. Maybe a slightly more contrast can improve this view. Nevertheless well presented my friend! TFS.

:) Later...

As promised...

I love this funny shot, Hugh !
Two pairs of glasses :)
Well captured and composed.
Seems you have a series ...

Hi Hugh,

i just love this picture...the look of the guy, the two pair of glasses on him and the fruits and the look saying.."are you talking to me?"

nice shot!
