Ho hum…#241

Yet more accolades…

Folks DO seem to like this image.

First it gets chosen for an online tourist guide for Frankfurt.

Now it’s gone and won a prize in a competition run by our local rag, the Mainzer Allgemeine Zeitung.

(Got a breathless call last night from the Nobel Academy in Stockholm our neighbour across the road, star reporter Birgit S., last night, bringing the tidings of great joy)

But I have to say that the prizes are definitely going down hill.

The last time they ran something like this, I won a 5 course menu for 2 at the restaurant in the Hilton – at least US$200 at today’s prices.

AND the Wine Princess was on hand – tiara and all – with congratulations.

This time it’s a book on how to take digital photographs.

By mail

And no Wine Princess.

Not that I’m ungrateful or anything…
