19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Man and Machete

This image shows a tree trimmer working up in a palm tree, using a machete to remove the lower branches on the tree. He is concentrating on his work. I liked the body language of man against tree. I wanted to capture his intensity and the danger of hanging out up there attached by ropes with a sharp instrument in his hand.
