Sunday Snapshot: Eggshell Light Play

What was supposed to be a relaxing week off started off with me being sick in bed. Unfortunately I spent my birthday and next couple of days lounging around not doing much of anything. But because I have the most wonderful husband, and even though I was ill, he still managed to give me a beautiful day. My sweet man ran around preparing meals, picking up special treats and spending an hour looking for movies at the video rental shop that I wanted to watch. He is so doting and I would be utterly lost without him.

Luckily by Wednesday I was feeling much better and finally able to venture out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a very special day filled with love, happiness, friendship, gifts, and of course lots of yummy food too.

Lovey-dovey words aside, I did enjoy my time away from the computer. I wouldn’t mind another week off but I fear that it would be much to tempting to make it a long hiatus. So slowly I’ll be getting back to the swing of things and keeping up with all blog related work.

Now onto these eggshell photos, I shot them the same Sunday that I photographed my Sunday Breakfast and Egg Cooking Tips post. After we had finished with our breakfast I noticed how lovely the sun light was shinning onto the shooting area and table. Wanting to capture the beautiful light I grabbed a few of the broken eggshells and started snapping away. Three of the photos were shot with sidelight and the other three with back-lighting. The process was quite simple, as you can see, and in the end I ended up with two different looks.

Nancy, I am trying to go through my back log of your blogs from while I was gone, but it seems that all my responses end up in one place, which is a bit strange. Just know that I will read and cherish each one–I love your blog!

Bummer that you got sick! But I’m glad you enjoyed your week away from the computer. I really need to do that, too. Aren’t eggs so much fun to photograph? One of my favorite subjects. Great photos – thanks.

You really should take the time away from the computer John, it’s feels fantastic being disconnected. Agreed, eggs are a great subject. Thank you!

G’day! Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, TRUE!
Glad to read you are feeling better too!
I would not have thought of eggs to photograph, but like how the different angles, provide a totally different view!
One of the things I love about food photography too!
Cheers! Joanne

Sorry you got sick on your b-day and on vacation! I wasted my previous vacation last time being sick and I was so mad… =P I loooove the light for all these snapshots! I’m always having hard time with light. I need to study more, spending more time to practice with my camera. So fun and educational looking at your photos!

I am so sorry you were sick on “our” birthday. :( I actually had a bad cold the week leading up to the big day and that made me bummed out a bit. Well hopefully the “bad luck” passed and we have just a bright birthday year ahead of us. :)

Glad you got to spend a lovey-dovey day for your anniversary with the hubs. He sounds totally awesome btw…. what a keeper. :)

So we shared that too on our birthday? Lol. Definitely it was once in a life time thing. Yeah, I guess I’ll keep him around. Lol, I’m very lucky to have him.

Oh I’m so sorry that you started your time off in bed. What a bummer – and on your birthday no less! I’m glad you recovered, thanks to the husband and that y’all had a wonderful anniversary. Oh Nancy – I could put a couple of these shots on my wall! Gorgeous!
