les poissons












































This eyeball, spotted in the fish market on Martinique and easily the size of a baseball, belonged to a marlin that looked to be about 200 pounds on a skinny day. When I asked the fishmonger if I could photograph it, he looked on proudly. "C'est beau, eh?" "Oui, c'est beau."

Beautiful, indeed (thank you Google language tools). Was the eyeball for sale, or was it just hanging around?

It was just keeping an eye on things.
