Photographer's Note

We were looking wonderful blue sky and cotton clouds together at Leonsberg. Isn’t it? You can see still blue reflections and low tide too also in my photo… But some things are different.

A jobless man is collecting brownish jellyfish around Leonsberg pier. Brownish jellyfishes are brought by high tide from Atlantic Ocean and they are remaining on Suriname River’s mud after fast low tide.

His job ordered by one of Chinese guy and he must completely scan the muddy shore during in an hour just for 2 Euro. Naturally it was impossible to walk in waist deep mud and he scanned the entire area on his knees and hands.

You can see two more photos in my workshop version while he’s collecting brownish jellyfish and scanning the shore on knees.

This is other side of Leonsberg.


I’m adding “Cuisine” section of jellyfish article from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jellyfish Cuisine (*) :

Sliced and marinated jellyfish bells (often known as sesame jellyfish or jellyfish salad) is a common appetizer in Chinese cuisine. It is usually made using sesame seeds, sesame oil and, occasionally, spring onion. A similar dish appears in Vietnam, with red chilli pepper added. Korean version of the dish, haepari naengchae (cold jellyfish salad), is a summertime delicacy in the country, and is usually served with sweet and sour seasoning with mustard.

Packages of jellyfish bells (Chinese: 海蜇; pinyin: hǎizhé) can be bought at chinese grocery store in a salted and semi-desiccated form, which is usually yellow or slightly brownish in colour. The salted jellyfish does not have any fishy or unpleasant odours. It has been compared to the texture of elastic bands if dried.
