One of my photos was selected to illustrate a Wikipedia article on the La Tomatina festival in Spain. No, it's not the exciting "action shot" of the tomato fight; it's a picture of the guys greasing the pole for the climb-the-pole-and-cut-down-the-ham contest.

And... my photostory won the contest sponsored by FreeBento at Pinky-Street.com! Considering that most of the other entries were from 14-year old girls who take pictures of their little dollies with camera phones, this is probably something about which I should feel embarassed rather than proud.

Anyway... we survived our trip to Oregon.

Woo! Congrats on the Wiki content.. and that photostory is funny (I am a huge mythbusters fan, so I appreciate the references). As for the 14 year old girls? You totally PWNED them!!! HAHAHA.

Congrats on winning! I couldn't even enter, I've been so uninspired lately. :( I'm glad it was won by someone you know. Some of those "photographers" on pinky-street.com drive me nuts. Hello, learn to focus, people! And it's not "in focus" if the object in focus is the tree in the background and not the doll! Augh. *cough* Sorry, didn't mean to rant in your comments. :)

Glad you're still alive, too. :)

Haha, awesome! When you mentioned La Tomatina, I seriously thought they used the ones with your girls in it XD
