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.
And no Wine Princess.
Not that I’m ungrateful or anything…
