france. freedom fries. whatever.

it's just a simple flag, but there are several million people to whom it is the biggest chunk of their identity.

to me, it means a place where freedom fries are still pommes frites.

      Why needing identity... Why can't we just be "us" or "me" without bothering to belong to a state made by many men who declared it being France?
      Or USA?
      Why is geographic and national identity so important? I suppose it creates order somewhere in other's minds.
      But it also creates chaos and wars... Why need enemies? Why need flags!

      Nice shot, it would be even better if those colours were arranged in a sort of 'x' pattern...oops ;)

      Dang! I was just reading Austin Leslie's Cookbook from Chez Helene and I didn't know that he passed on.

      heh?

      my guess is that most purveyors of "freedom fries" serve insipid frozen potatoes, fried with no awareness of the potato's potential, and leave them to wilt ignominiously under a heat lamp.

      when i think of pommes frites, i think of new orleans; people there understand them.
