Photographer's Note

"CAKE! everybody loves cake!", says Marjorie Dawes, the terrifying leader of weight loss support group Fatfighters in "Little Britain"*. but according to her unbeatable logic, "if you eat only half of it, it's only half the calories, so you can have twice as much".

about the photo: I found that the light in Chile is very capricious, dull and gray one moment, intense red the next, and the other way around. no way to predict, since the mountains that are everywhere can change the weather in seconds, and the light with it. that particular evening this beautiful strawberry coloured light lasted for all of 5 minutes, illuminating the Taapaca volcano towering over the town of Putre. the zig-zagging line on the right is a road over the mountains, I found it a nice accent.

* some of the jokes in this BBC comedy show are witty and right to the point, some of the jokes I find vulgar. from the good ones my favourite is about Ray McCooney, an eccentric Scot who runs the Ye Olde Hotel in Scotland and tortures the guests of the restaurant with the riddles about the food the guests are enjoying. "I'm hard yet soft, I am coloured yet clear, I am fruity and sweet. I am jelly. what am I?", and after receiving a baffled answer "um... jelly?...", Ray suspiciously narrows the eyes and theatrically wispers "YE KNOW TOO MUCH!"
