Photographer's Note

For the correct Dgustation (tasting) of Ice Cream, follow these steps...

- Come from a northern country to southern Europe. Walk for an hour or two in the Sun.

- At that time, buy an Ice Cream and sit with a friend on the fresh stony steps of a cathedral.

- Hold the Ice Cream up against the Sun and appreciate its color, texture, transparency, etc.

- Smell it while holding it slightly sideways. This is the most important part, of course. If tasting many Ice Creams you should only get to this part, do not proceed to the other steps or you might get intoxicated.

- Bring it to your lips and delicately perform la Dgustation.

- Close your eyes and consider carefully the mixture of aromas, the texture, graininess and temperature; try to identify fruits and other natural elements included in the Ice Cream. Thinks about how it melts. Think of ten to twelve adjectives from other semantic fields that apply. All this can be a bit complicated, so concentrate; see the above illustration for a professional execution of this step.


PS - I also considered using the title Before / After for this one, but I gave up because it seemed a bit aggressive... :-)
