As I make forays into getting back to photography and writing, I've entered some contests in different printed and online publications. Above is the photo I submitted for a wine-shot contest last week. Don't ask how I took that. It involved an outstretched arm and a lot of luck.
This week, I saw in the Monterey County Weekly's (in)Box Lunch:
"And, without further ado, Camilla Mann has won our wine photo contest (and two Monterey Wine Festival tickets), edging out Jenn Gerard and Beverly Van Pelt. The shot is titled 'Cheers' and was taken during a trip down the River Road Wine Trail."
Sweet. So, tonight we drop the boys off with a sitter and I get to whisk my love and a friend away for a wine adventure, the Friday evening kick-off event of the Monterey Wine Fest - "A Night to Celebrate Reds." I'll be writing a piece about some of the local vintners and the rest of the fest for Edible Monterey Bay. Keep an eye out for it...and once it's live there, I'll post a link here.
Till then, cheers!
