Food and Dance

Mushrooms from the market

As is appropriate for life in France, my stay has quickly become all about food. Mostly eating it, but sometimes photographing it. Above and below are food still lifes I made in Andrea and Tommy’s house.

Sausages and Tomatoes

I haven’t begun to photograph the cheese yet because as soon as I see it, all thought of photography leaves my mind. It’s all about the cheese.

Harpist playing an avant guard version of "Danny Boy"

We went to an art opening last night where this harpist was wailing on some Irish music. She had a single mindedness like me when I see the cheese.

Andrea took me into the back room of the gallery to show me the 17th century staircase that replicated the one in her house. There were all these bodies flying around warming up for a dance concert.

I didn’t stay for the dance, it was time to eat.

    I always knew that the Cajun shrimp recipe that we use in New Orleans originally came from France, but now I get to see how its really done…heads and all (we also boil, saute and bake with heads on). wonderful post…
