Photographer's Note

This shot is a bit of an experiment . . . and I'm not sure how it worked out.

In Uganda, coffee is a huge cash crop. In this particular town, people put the coffee beans on the side of the road to dry, putting them out in the morning and taking them in each evening.

The original shot was of the whole person standing in the coffee, but he was terribly overexposed, beyond anything I could do to save him. I thought the most interesting thing was that the coffee was in the road and that nobody was bothered if you walked on it, so I tried this crop. I'm curious if you think it worked.
