Salon 255-Cake.

Well as it's my birthday tomorrow(21 againish, well plus 40) and my daughter made me one of my favorites, chocolate and raspberry loaf





lets try "Cake" for the next salon. Should be plenty about over Christmas.


1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.


The deadline for entries is midnight, Monday 31st December, GMT.


Have fun.

Re: Salon 255-Cake.

I'm going to have to do some digging to find a good shot. In the meantime, here's one that's noted for the cakemaker's skill, not my photographic skills. Forty two years ago, my first wife logged her 1000th parachute jump the same time I made my 2000th. A friend surprised us with this cake to commemorate the occasion.

Re: Salon 255-Cake.

Wedding cake. Yes, that is an alien. This is my nephew and his wife on their wedding day in 2014. I'd been told that the cake was based on the birth scene from Alien, so was quite relieved that it had been toned down a lot!

Re: Salon 255-Cake.

My second entry, seen in the window of a bakery in the covered market in Oxford - there was also their version of the Sheldonian (in cake) but I didn't get that so cleanly - although I have removed the background of the kitchen.

Re: Salon 255-Cake.

Good subject Andy, but I admit I had to search my archives to find cake pictures!

Congratulations Barrie - what's next?

I take some share of the blame as Christmas and New Year was a bit of a blur and all the sites got neglected. Garry has been doing great, as have all the other moderators but in the end I need to do more! Top of my to-do list is to rev all the websites up this year.



Thank you Andy- I'm not allowed cake (medical reasons) so I get presented the likes of this :






Well done Barr1e! I need your address to post the Nero 2019 software to


Happy New Year everyone!


Ian

Re: Salon 255-Cake.

Sorry for my lack of involvement. Time just hasn't been on my side.

Good entries though. Like the winning shot.
