EGG 101

This week's Photo Challenge is the egg.
Not being able to sleep AGAIN, I arose in the wee
hours of the morning and headed downstairs to my favorite cozy chair.
I love the light in this room in the early morn.
It reminds me of a dark old farmhouse parlor, though in
reality, it couldn't be farther from that.


I jumped up, grabbed some eggs, plopped them into
a favorite old brown bowl.


No fancy effects or treatments, just eggs, just a point and shoot camera.
Effects provided by early morning light coming
through the south window.


Love the egg shape shadow I got with this one.

Whipped up a quick Havarti cheese omelet and
went back to bed for a couple more winks.

Please visit Razmataz and Chania as she hosts week 3
of her Photo Challenge.

Everything you photograph has that lovely sepia tone. What could be lovlier than a simple bowl of eggs?

Sounds like me I woke up too early ate an omlette with dear husband and then crashed on the couch.
I should have taken pictures of my eggs instead.
In my defense I did whip up beach plum sauce.....and of course I had to photograph it.
Hey maybe next week it'll be beach plum week....yeah right!

btw I love the warm glow you got that early in the morning.
You would just love my friend Ginny's house. It looks like an old parlor throughout the house.

Stunning! I have read things that say a photographer or a painter might "wait" for just the right light. Serendipity for you to be there at that perfect moment!

Hi dear Z,
Only you could make even a dozen eggs look divine! I love how you can explain things so well. I feel that I would be totally happy to sit in this room in the wee hours too.
hugs to you...
