    I am a French teacher in Fort Kent, Maine. I have added one of your photos to a photo gallery that I will use to teach color and clothing vocab. Thank you for this wonderful photo. Please let me know if you object to your photo being used in this way.

    Je suis prof de français à Fort Kent dans le Maine. J'ai ajouté l'une de vos photos à une expo pour que je vais utiliser pour enseigner du vocabulaire sur les couleurs et les vêtements. Merci pour cette photo merveilleuse. Veuillez me faire savoir si vous ne voulez pas que j'utilise votre photo de cette mannière,

    Merci encore,

    The quality of the shot makes it seem like this was taken with a modern digital SLR and lighting system... very deceiving!

    Can anyone from the LOC comment on the photographer's shooting technique? I just noticed that this photo, and the one preceding it are practically the same, just with different background composition. It almost looks like it was shot in a studio, the lighting is so perfect....
