an exception to every rule
one of my rules is “no manmade objects in a still blog composition.” another of my rules, as i have mentioned several times before, is “all rules are made to be broken.” in this case, the bundles are wine-soaked vine branches used as filters inside the fermentation vats of our friends, andre and veronique balliccioni. you will notice that they are tied tight by various types of fasteners, including string, twine, and, most endearingly of all, torn strips of t-shirt. i am in love with the whole package, and so today you are going to have to deal with a manmade object in a still blog compostion.
