Photographer's Note

What is this? How is this trek-earth worthy you may ask? How can we learn about the world through this photograph? I shall explain:

I took this photo last night. In fact the red object is actually the outer wax covering of one of the many cheeses we have here in France. I bent it into the form of a heart and tried to take some pictures of it against different colored backgrounds. I got a little creative and decided to put it into a glass of tap water. The other thing that you will learn is that in France the water has extremely high amounts of lime-scale "calcaire". So much so that white residue gets on everything and one must buy products to get rid of this lime-scale buildup on dishes and bathroom fixtures.

So for the picture itself I made the mistake of putting this wax heart in hot water instead of cold. It started to melt almost immediately. I also put it in the water before it calmed down so the heart kept moving and sticking to the edges of the glass. Voila! As always critisim is appreciated.
