~eggs 101

"Tis the part of a wise man to keep himself to-day for to-morrow, and not to venture all his eggs in one basket" Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra It's that time of year... for eggs.... laying .... and dyeing... and having lessons about... first...white on white. one egg... one egg in a white basket... and one soft... because who could resist a soft boiled egg? then on black... a black nest... black bokeh.. white egg... then.. well.. time to play... a dozen...cage free...browns... basking in the light... and more whites... in the light... lined up on the sill... and a painted...and crackled one... resting in a nest of moss... held gently in an old wire egg cup... and why not try a feather... a delicate white wisp of a feather and some texture.. and trying to remember not to put all the eggs in one basket... I decided to keep to-days for to-morrows omelet...

I've loved seeing everyone's different interpretations of this project. Seems like many people lined their eggs up all in a row - I particularly like your sitting on the window sill quietly waiting. Such lovely photos!
Linda said…
I love your pictures, especially the white ones lined up on the windowsill. We used our duck eggs for the most deliciopus omlette yesterday too!

Love the label in your first photo! The first photo in your white on white - love the subtle layers in the background! The eggs in a row on the plain wooden window sill are simple beauty! And the last image, sharing your intentions - quirky :-)

Beutiful work Theresa. Ver creative, love your use of light. I really like the white egg on black, the contrast in color and also the contrast of texture with the smooth egg makes it really interesting. The brown and white egg in also a true favorite. I am glad you could join in, can't wait to see what you come up with for next week.
Hope you are feeling better.

That is a gorgeous post; the words, the photos, the entire image. It caused me to slow down, breathe slower. You really got me! :) Thank you.
So very beautiful, T. My girls are clucking their approval.

you are amazing here with your photos!! the white ones on the window sill are my faves!! as well as the brown ones in the carton, you and christina really captured some glorious light on your cartons full.
I love your egg pics...wish I had seen that post before trying an egg diptych this week. White on white is difficult to focus. ;-) You have some wonderful lighting and compositions. Great job.

Oh, you're probably the 4th I am seeing with the egg shots and suddenly am realizing how evocative shooting an egg can be!
FYI, make me only ONLY brown eggs anytime and please, don't ask why!!!

Theresa, you definitely have a love affair with light. I'd been looking forward to your post and you did not disappoint. Each thought and execution is appreciated from here.
Erin Wallace said…
Amazing pictures all! The last one is a favorite, the contrast of the white egg against the red bowl. Also, the way the light is shining ove rthe egg carton is wonderful. Quite lovely!

i like your writings so much, this one of course it makes me think of spring and easter, a fresh collection of natural wonder.
What a fun post! Who knew eggs could be so inspiring :)

Enjoy your omelet!

Never doubted that you could make a simple egg a thing of such beauty. In particular, the windowsill shot is simply incredible!

I love the painted egg and the feathered egg. What delicate texture it added. Stunning. I am also sorry to read of your stolen items from the blog. How sad. Glad you are through that.
echolage said…
Beautiful, I really like the row of white eggs by the window. Sorry I'm getting back to you so late.
I like the painted egg best. Did you make it?

What eggquisite egg patterns! I love the one in the wire cup!
Your egg photos are amazing. You yet another classmate, with gorgeous photos, that make me want to retake mine. I adore the one of the dozen cage free beauties basking in the sun! There is nothing like an egg, a fresh egg.
