Party Time

Catchy Colors Panel of Judges and our honored Ambassador came together for the grand event dressed appropriately to choose the winners and boy were they prepared to make the tough decision of selecting winners in 1st, 2nd and Runner up categories.

I'm so happy. It came as a real surprise : the other participations were so great I hadn't the slightest hope to be mentionned !
I thank everyone too and especially that 'photogenic' pepper which unfortunately cannot join us since we ate it long ago ...

I still have a lot to learn but with Flickr and all of your wonderful photos I have great inspiration. !efatima, I want to thank you especially, you have touched my world with colors and a vibrancy I've never known........... thank you for sharing your beauty with us all.
