I haven’t yet joined Twitter because I’m finding it difficult enough to keep up with all the other social networking demands of this one woman band so I was pleased when I opened up my latest issue of National Geographic Traveler (the Jan./Feb. 2012 issue) to find this:
When I found out that this image had been selected for the cover of the October 2011 issue on Real Food Experiences I was, of course, thrilled, (and blogged about it earlier), but it’s nice to know that other people are willing to put their thoughts about the image on Twitter. The tweet was from Jessica, WhyGo Italy @italylogue. This image has always been one of my favorites not only because it celebrates one of the many things I love about Oregon, but it features one of my favorite wineries, the Brick House Vineyard in Dundee. Our goal when we were producing this image was to make it inviting – as though one would want to walk into the picture, sit down, pour a nice glass of pinot noir then sit around and visit with friends in Oregon Wine Country. Thank you Jessica for your nice comment, and thank you National Geographic Traveler for using the image to illustrate your issue about food. Cheers!
