Nothing much struck my fancy this week except a photo by Emmanuel Pierrot, the chicken with its wings and thighs... When I was in high school (this was last century), I was asked to answer a dictum by Voltaire: "The most useful books are those of which readers compose half." My response was brief and popular among my classmates: "The most useful books are cookbooks." The teacher was indulgent... This "kitchen" photo is a real joy. Perhaps Voltaire's saying also applies to photography. Send me your copies. Have a nice week!
