Photographer's Note

Hi all,

I wanted to wish everyone on Trekearth and mainly the people I have discussed photo's with and mailed/talked with, a Merry Christmas and a happy and fortunate New Year : 2008! May it bring you well, may you pass fully it in good health (important!) and learn you a lot about protography and other things. May your compositions be good and exposures be spot on! :-)
I guess this one isn't but whatever :-)

[Food info]
I could not resist to take a snap of a typical Dutch dinner today, on 25-12. Gourmet so it seems is a typical Dutch phenomenon, although it probably has it's origin in Asia, so let's do not give it too much credit. It is also a typical Christmas tradition. Meat is the main menu (sorry for the vegetarians, Christmas must be a tough time..)
But it's nice to add mushrooms, paprika, onion, egg, etc.

Some people don't like gourmet, cause it takes a long time, others like it (like I do) because it is "gezellig" as we call it; sociable. Talk, enjoy the time and occasionaly take a bite.

Add a nice glass of wine, red or rosé and voila!
Bon appetit!

Well First Christmasday has passed, but have a good Second one! I have to work hehe, but will have a nice lunch.
