Yesterday was very rewarding

(This week’s Photo Challenge Reward)

Tip for people who like my pictures: you might like follow the mentioned/linked WordPress blogs as well 😉

Last month I was ‘awarded’  two social media accounts (annual contracts) of restaurants in the village.  This local acknowledgement felt for me as a reward. The profile picture of YUM Eat Cafe with owners and staff framed went viral (yesterday evening over 100 retweets plus quite a few shares on FB) and that on its own is also a reward. But look into the picture. It tells many things; one is that of the croissants. These are made from scratch by the two chefs and baked into perfection with modern kitchen technology (timing, temperatures and moisture/humidity in oven pre-programmed) and the reward is a perfect delicious tasteful croissant.

The second picture (shot yesterday) is of Stanford Harvest.  Stanford Harvest is part of the Elandsvalley Farm just outside the village and their food is fresh from the land. This farm restaurant promotes itself also by attending markets in the region. But yesterday was unexpected. Every year there is this Bird Fair in the village that attracts bird lovers from around the globe. There are a wide variety of presentations and lectures and the organisation is usually perfect. This time however the organisation forgot seemingly that all the participants also have to eat. Vivienne McOnie (co-owner of Elandsvalley Farm/Stanford Harvest) discovered this omission and within no time kitchen staff was mobilised and within one hour the food stall was up and running. The reward: Hundreds of meals and plenty of fresh produce (including honey of the own bees) sold!!! Stanford Harvest

    1. It’s all coincidental Sheila. I read about the challenge just after it all happened. Both accounts are new and still have to be shaped. I dearly hope that their investment in me will pay itself within a year or so. Another client saw his turnover jump with 30% up in 6-7 months. Even for me that was a big surprise. As a conservative (in social media) I always tell people that I can’t give any guarantee only the promise that I will do my utmost best for them. After all it’s not the quantity that counts but the money 😉
