Back and a Winner! (2)

Yahooah!!!! I won!!! Remember this picture I send in for Jugalbandi's CLICK! "Cookies"? No not the cookie-monster but the snowflake cookies. It was chosen most original photo! (and 3rd place in the spectra category 'best capture'). Isn't that something! I'm chuffed to bits. Thanks Bee and Jai, thanks Jury!
I had a melt down in computerland, so I wasn't able to respond right away, but I'm thrilled, really lovely!

Do you know what is spooky? I won before with my picture of the fava bean last year. I couldn't respond then either because... my computer had crashed. Can there be a coincidence or is the spring just a dangerous month to use my computer and/or enter photography events? Maybe next year I should skip the event around this time. But then again maybe spring is my only winning time... will I have a post up next year saying "Back and a winner! (3)"?.. We'll see...

Glad to let you know I'm back and the computer is running again, it still has to be replaced -we're working on that- but I hope it stays alive until the new one is chosen and installed. So far so good! I had to buy a new screen, 19" instead of the 15" I used before (it short circuited or something). They don't make them that small anymore for normal people (just for business). It just fitted in the computercabinet, but my pictures all look strange and stretched.... it'll take a while to get used to I guess. Funny I never realised that other people may see things different depending on their screens. Thanks for being patient :-)

The photo is a winner.
I can understand why the computer failure and winning are spooky even as I know there really not a link;)

Het is ook een knaller van een foto en een prachtig versierde eetbare kristal en dan ook nog zwevend....:-)
Je maakt altijd al van die smakelijk uitziende foodpics, dus het is helemaal verdiend!

(went snel hoor die 19"....;-))))

congratulations. You've deserved it!
Your picutres are very creative and a lot more attractive than in most of the cookbooks.
Just join the contest next year; you know what they say about three times.......

Congrats, once again. :)
And let me tell you from experience, once you get used to your bigger screen, you'll find the smaller one weird.

Jamie said...
