Siffler

La Rochelle, France 2003. Image scanned from photo.

This guy was a street vendor selling these little whistles that sound like a bird. He didn’t speak much, just kept tweeting. People would look around to see where that sound was coming from and he would motion with his brow that it was coming from him.

I haven’t seen this photo in five years, but I have dreams with this man in them. Not bad ones, just odd ones where he is standing around with his whistle and hat.

And yes, we bought one of his whistles.
