What's in an egg?

Egg and Water #2

"When you crack open an egg you do not necessarily break its secret; but to watch its yolk spreading is to experience all its sensuality"

Judith Baumann

This is my experiment shots with raw egg and water.

For those who are interested in food photography, I used natural light from my window.
The background is the front cover of the cookbook called Eggs. I used the blue-ish tone from the book and "borrow" the feather from there, too.

Here is another shot, but I don't really like it.

Egg and Water #1

Some of you may ask where is the food? Well, some are on the way - just give me some time to sort all the photos out and get inspired to write...

Last but not least, I wish all of you, my readers, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I will be away for a few days from now and come back just in time for Christmas Eve. Hopefully I will "see" you guys then, or, early next year perhaps!

Dear Anh,
Love the photos and quote.

Merry Christmas and wishing you a fantastic start to 2008. I've been so busy too. Will only manage 2 posts this month. I just posted the DB yule logs, which I only managed to do because I did it 2 weeks ago. I am around, just too busy with other stuff, I'm sure you are in the same boat as me. I will be back in Singapore in the first 2 weeks of 2008, so I'll hopefully write from there.

Enjoy your break!
