Does My Blog Look Good in This? I guess so!

Andrew just posted the results of the monthly photo competition - Does My Blog Look Good in This? #8. And I'm so thrilled - I placed second! Out of 56! Aaaah! I'm so happy! That's just amazing. Although - I do love the picture. A lot. So much that I'm letting you all see it again:



You can find the full results here. There are some seriously gorgeous pictures - I am really impressed by everyone. All the entries are here. Some of my own faves: #49, #45, #36 and #1. All look totally cookbook-worthy though - I seen a lot worse in books and magazines all the time.

A word on food photography, and what it means to me.. actually, the photos is one of the reasons I enjoy having a blog. I've been interested in photography since I was 15 and got to do a work experience week in a photo lab. An intern taught me how to develop film, and taught me a lot of neat tricks with an old regular camera. It was amazing. A whole new world opened - or that's what it felt like. I kept it up a lot during high school, always snapping pics of people. Nowadays, I've gone digital. I have an Olympus C-8080 WZ, and since about a month I also use a separate flash. (Olympus FL-36.) I've also got a tiny Olympus Mju Mini, perfect for my purse!

Wow, jättegrattis! De hallonen ser ju så smaskiga ut att jag förstår att juryn föll för dem.

hearty congrats! And it was sooo close too.

I am getting very excited myself - as I have just ordered a new digital SLR! I can leave the ol' camera phone behind.. yipee.

Congrats, Anne! This is a beautiful photo and the 2nd place is very well deserved!
I had some lovely Scottish raspberries for breakfast today (alongside with a latte and chocolate croissant at my neighbourhood deli). I was having the breakfast with a Japanese friend of mine, and was telling to her about this Swedish blogger who did this cool thing with raspberries and tea-infused chocolate. Coincidence, eh:)
