Dear Shaded Viewers,

As much as I wanted to make it to the show and the brunch for the Royal Academy of Antwerp, it was just not possible. Sonny and I will be giving out the first ASVOF Editorial prize which consists of Sonny doing a photo shoot which will be featured on my site. Sonny, having just returned from Australia practically went from the plane to the show. This morning he sent me the photos of the graduating class so that we could choose the ASVOF Editorial Prize winner. The winner will be announced today at the brunch. I thought the graduating class had many excellent students so it was not that easy a choice to make.

 I was looking forward to seeing my friends so I asked Sonny to sent back  their smiling faces.  Bruno Pieters is celebrating his birthday tonight, Happy Birthday Bruno.
