Cherry Bomb - The Runaways
Not much of a food shooter, which is quite evident. But I do have a good story behind this shot.
The background. Over the past weeks, Queensland has been hit by really severe floods. The size of the flooded area I heard is bigger than Germany and France put together.
Ego Pharmaceuticals, where I work, held a craft and bake sale yesterday, and we raised $4,000+ in a day. That amount was matched by the company which brought us to $8000, and we donated that sum through a big supermarket chain that offered to match all donations. So $16,000 in a day from the magnificent people at work. How amazing is that.
It is amazing that the 150+ people spent the weekend baking and making stuff to raise money for our northern cousins. And the result, well, the proof is in the pudding.
The shot. This is of one of about 80 cakes and crafts that was on sale. I think it went for close to $50, which works out to $200 in the end. More tomorrow.
