Photographer's Note

Title was chosen because yesterday I already found the Dentelles, and here I saw a certain ressemblance with the Crinolines (*), kind of stiff petticoats, "puffed" with help of whalebone (?) or iron circles.

* As I like to "google", I finally found:
Crinoline - French word, from Italian crinolino : crino, horsehair (from Latin crinis, hair. See sker in Indo-European Roots) + lino, flax. It was made of cotton or horsehair, used chiefly by women, for underskirts, to expand the gown worn over it.
* * I also found out that crinoline was still used for costumes and wedding dresses, and that it's called poodle skirts. Quite an imaging name, isn't it? :o)
