Eggs in Space



Photo Workshop courtesy of http://candcphoto.blogspot.com/

A pristine white egg didn't seem to jive with my love for old buildings and this blog. But then I was thinking of small discoveries, and suddenly the ubiquitous local ladybugs suddenly came into my thought and I thought "how like an egg they are!" 


 I particularly like this shot, as it appears the egg with ladybug attached has caught flight. 


This one captures the roundness and graininess of the egg shell a bit better. It reminds me of the moon craters.

  10. what a creative take on this assignment -- we each have made it our own, and i'm enjoying seeing the unique perspective of all the participants!

    i love your little ladybug, and the contrast and light you've achieved. i particularly like the little view in the bottom left corner of the collage, with just hint of aqua in the background. lovely.

  16. These are great! Love the use of the ladybug - they are everywhere, and now on the eggs! Plus, the red pop is nice. Like it's traversing a huge orb. Great!

  18. you seem to catch the egg without gravity and the lady bug adds to the floatiness.
