And we got a winner!
The help Martin at the Photo Awards.
Some of you probably remember that Martin not so long ago asked us for our help, and vote if we liked his picture and so as a natural thing I helped him to give my vote at the Photo Awards 2011 held by 1x.com.
Picture: Bagan Balloons – Myanmar (Burma)
See his wonderful photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/msojka/page5/
But also I loved his picture and found it more than a photo – a catch of a magic moment, kind of a fairytale told in one shot.
So I was happy and hat long forgotten all about the post martin made when I received a mail from him:
Message Surprise, surprise… long forgotten mini-contest and you’re winner: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/31544 :)
Thanks for your vote.
And so yesterday a pack arrived in Copenhagen…
I was a little confused since I expected a square picture but got a long thin pack…
Could this be the pack from Martin? Or was it a LJ buddy surprise?
As I opened it I was even more surprised, this looked like some super cool trade fair display thing…
Did Martin mess up the order?
What is this thing, in a cool design and a box that seems to explain the story?
Once I rolled out the roll it was clear – it was Martins picture.
In a beautiful print quality and on a kind of crisp foil.
So time to solve the mystery…
What is it in the box, what are these nicely made aluminum profiles use…
Read the manual!
Actually just a fast look and it was easy to see what to do, three parts needed to be put together and the print on to this in already made holders, almost too easy.
Even screw and holdfast for wire is in the box for alternative methods of hanging this on the wall.
As you can see on the photo the company who make these frames are called Xpozer and i found a link for then here: http://www.xpozer.com/en/ if some one should want to know more.
And it was all also written on the box.
Here you see it all put together, it was so logic that I could not do wrong.
The rest is just to put it on a nail.
And so it is now hanging on my wall, with a distance that makes it stand out due to the hidden aluminum frame.
And so the story ends with Martins wonderful picture on my wall.
Thank you Martin.
