Not that anyone from G+ would have probably seen them here but we were told to stay hush-hush about the hunt until after it was done and I didn’t want to get disqualified on a technicality on the chance I was awarded something; I wasn’t.
There were some amazing images contributed and the talent is unbelievable. There were a lot of the same names coming up as winners – I would say the fix is in but the quality of most of them was there and I don’t want to sound like a sore loser. I think with what I had at my disposal – some of these people had full studios and models available – I didn’t do too bad. I have to thank my wife for the idea for secret and steering me away from what I was thinking of doing for water. I still say taking a shot from behind so it looked like I was peeing would have been a winner.
The cookie one was disappointing a little, I tried so hard to make a cup shaped cookie but it just didn’t happen. I made a mess and reinforced the fact that I simply can’t bake, I screwed up cookies that came out of a tube. There’s something about me and baking, I pre-heat the oven and spray the pan put them in and watch as the eight minute mark passes to see if they’re browning. I wait as the twelve minute mark passes, then the fifteen and I’m no closer to having a cooked piece of dough then I was to start with. My wife? She turns on the oven, plops the dough on the cookie sheet, puts it in the barely warm oven and ten minutes later has perfectly baked cookies.
There’s supposed to be another hunt in March and I’m watching for the notice sometime mid-month, I may take part again but I’m not sure. I do know one thing, I’m not trying to bake anything this time around (although it was a delicious experiment.)
