EXPOSED! ... At the Nectarine Factory
Sorry for the quality. This was taken with a hidden camera at a major produce warehouse with available light and no flash. Apparently this is not an uncommon practice - see the discussion.

Was I surprised to see how nectarines were "produced". This company seems to be more up-to-date in the process as the attached photo of a competitor from their files shows.

On another matter, I have been out of touch for a few days. Been on this undercover assignment (O.K., just my real job!). When I returned, my computer suffered a serious crash. I missed the end of April's contest photos. Is there any way to see those now that the April contest is closed?

  Very cute, Wally.
Great sense of humor, especially after a computer crash!
Hope all's better, now.

  Terrific photos and 'tale' Wally. If Sirius was around, he could take you back in time to accomplish your desires, eh… (he, he, he) Sorry I can't be of more help, but my "wand" is in being recharged, I'm fresh out of 'potions', and of course, when you really need Hermione, she's no where to be found, eh - Allan

  Hi Wally,
Here is the link to the last contest:
http://www.betterphoto.com/contest/winners/0403.asp It can be found also under the photo to the right at the home page.

Nice catch on these photos! If you were to put a hidden camera on my bathroom mirror, you'd see the same thing going on with me! LOL

  Thanks for your comments, Claudia, Bill, Allan, Carolyn, Leanne, Shirley, Ed, and Lori; glad you enjoyed my hidden-camera work ;) Lori, I knew that I could find winners of past contests, but there seems to be no way to access all entries in the previous month's (April) contest, unless I missed it somehow. I am not surprised since there are probably over 12,000 of them. I'll just have to see all of your late entries when the finalists are announced.

  Thank you all for your good wishes. This was the first photo I entered in May. It was shortly before my hard drive crash. Ironically, it is one of the photos I lost forever in that crash. So, all of you who want to purchase a copy, you are out of luck! Maybe the judges felt sorry for me. In that case I'll have to work up a good story for this month.

Thanks again.
