Looking back in white and black

Now that I'm running out of fresh photos, it's raining outdoors. That means I won't be taking the camera out on my walks with Tasha. Oh well, there's always a food photo or two.

Looking easterly toward the hamlet from the vineyard.

I found coques (cockles) at the market yesterday, so today we're making linguini with white clam sauce for lunch. The market in Montrichard is larger than at Saint-Aignan. The town was pretty with shop lights glowing brightly and snow flurries flying. The poultry vendor told me that Saint-Aignan's Christmas market will be held on Thursday the 23rd this year since Christmas falls on Saturday. Next week, or the week after, one of us will go into town to place the order for our holiday bird. I think we're leaning toward a chapon de pintade (Guinea fowl capon).


  1. The photo in B&W (sorry, white and black) is wonderful.

  2. For some reason, this photo reminds me of the one hanging in your living room in San Francisco. Maybe because it is black and white?
    Pintades are much tastier than turkeys, even French one. Industrial turkeys, do not apply.

    1. Above the chimney in S.F. and, now, above the TV.

  3. Oh, I bet that was a pretty sight... French market, snow in the air, lights for Christmas, nice old town. Ahhhh :)

  4. mitch, a very foggy morning.

    chm, that photo is by Henri Cartier-Bresson and, yes, it's in B&W. Good memory!

    judy, it was nice. I wish I had had the camera with me.

  5. Again the meals sounds scrumptious.
    If I were to retire I want to be near fresh produce, especially seafood.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
