POTN G-Series Speed Challenge #5 - AN EGG

Challenge #5 is to submit an image of AN EGG. You all have fine cameras and probably an egg in the fridge so will be starting off on a level playing field - unless by chance you happen to have a fine egg pic on file. The challenge is limited only by your imagination.

Try for an image that you would be proud to frame and hang on your wall to illustrate your artistic creativity and mastery of your equipment. The winners will have impact, sharp focus at the centre of interest, and good composition.

To submit, click "Post Reply" and put your Photo Name in the Subject Line. Don't forget your Camera Model.

Post until Sunday midnight GMT, March 13, 2005.

What are you feeding him?

I found this birds nest in a crape myrtle I was pruning this weekend. Glad I saved it after showing it to my daughter.

100-year-old egg

IMAGE: http://www.kleptography.com/dl/potn/egg2.jpg

All right, they're not really 100 years old -- 100 days is closer to the truth. Coated with lime, rolled in rice husks and buried in ceramic pots, they're "cooked" by the lime and tinted by the mud until they look ancient. Once they're ready for sale, they're dug up and most of the black covering is scrapped off (there's a quarter-inch backing on the egg that you can't see here). This scraping is always done to create this sort of pattern, no matter where you buy them in Hong Kong.
