Photographer's Note

Living seven years with a still-life photographer in NYC leaves traces.
He taught me a few "dramatic" lights and ways to display the still-life (nature morte). It was high-tide season, and lots of fishes were hanging around the small bay of Etretat and so, many fishermen too. The fishermen look if the "fraye" (thousands of small fishes near the shore) was here today, then they plant one to three cannes à pêche at about one meter on the shore, and they wait, standing up, with the waves dying at their feet. The catch of the day were orfi (there) and maquereau (mackerel). Delicious, when cooked à-la-normande : with salted butter, crême fraîche and câpres, mhhhh, miam-miam.
