A Wheel of Fortune *


They say every 15th fortune you read from the fortune cookies comes out to be true. This is my 15th. And I opened it after this photo was taken :-) -Cat

i related the image to packman before the fortune cookie too. this surely has one of your 'conceptual' touch/feel. i like it. -Abstract

Thanks Traveller. After you pointed out, I noticed that the fortune cookie also resembles the "packman" character. LOL. Hadn't thought of it earlier. -Cat

To add to what others have said....I like the idea that the fortune cookie is about to eat the fortune....or it is being extracted from the mouth of the fortune cookie, interpret as you wish. Lovely & smart image regardless. Traveller

A fun and graphical image. Nicely lit where the shadows play an important part in the graphics. Great idea with a satisfying exceution. -Michael

Very very nice, I like the way you have made the spiral with the fortune cookie papers, and the chopsticks are a real nice touch. Very nice.

Cheers, Vikas.
