Award Shortlist   

Dark, dark and darker still.

By david deveson  
It's dark in Dolce Acqua, set deep in the mountains above the sunny coast of Liguria.
A village of catacombs set into the rocks housing dwelling after dwelling where inhabitants live like moles who only come out to do the daily shopping, blinking their eyes in the sunlight.
This old lady wasn't interested in shopping but in sitting (or should I say posing?) for the hordes of tourists passing through.
No matter she seemed to enjoy it and enjoyed her moment in the limelight.
Eyes blinking of course.

Not the sort of subject that I normally like but there is somnething about her expression and surroundings that draws me in. It's also the way she is sitting I think - sort of crone in the corner weaving spells.
