… As for your interest being purely theoretical, never say never: I have a feeling the only way to photograph a backlit saucisson on a 12.5 x 5.5 foot terrace would be to use HDR

Yours truly to a friendly stranger – July 27, 2007

Well, we never said never. Instead we chopped the starting “n” off the word, and eventually, photograph a saucisson on said terrace we did. Along with a hundred other marvelous feasts, duly vetted by a big black cat and which ended up in a wonderful book.

My eternal gratitude and love to the stranger for an elemental photography question, and for focusing on my mention of French charcuterie rather than my lack of cooking skills. That focus was a spark.


The terrace that became home – no saucisson shots were available I’m afraid
