The idea for my contribution came whilst preparing an omelette a few mornings ago. As always, my mind was somewhere up in the clouds when I accidently dropped an egg onto my chopping board... and "CRACK!!!", the shell broke and the egg oozed out. It was at that point that I realised how a structure so perfect can also be so fragile.

Destruction - A Broken Egg

I have a great fun theme idea for April, which I will announce on 1st April. So, keep your eyes peeled and your camera at the ready!!!

Warm regards,

Graham xx

Just posted my contribution today! Have a look at it ;-)

Love yours. The close-up is incredibly clear and... wow, it's beautiful! It's original too... I wouldn't have thought of it!

Let me thank you at the same time for your birthday wishes. I just came back from France and had very little internet time over there, so sorry for not reacting earlier...

Have a good Sunday!

Hey Zhu! Thanks for your kind comment. I am trying to play about with Macro photograph... I'm getting there slowly athough I still have a lot to learn.

I am glad that you had a lovely trip to France and I hope you had a great birthday too!

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe I forgot about your project, my apologies, I will definably submit with the April one to make up for things. Love the egg photo, that happens to me a lot, then again, I'm no shining star in the kitchen! So it's to be expected, hehe. :)

Good to see you still with the challenges.

Hahahah Muse, I know... how sad that egg was when it realised it wasn't going into the cookie dough. Still, there are plenty more where that one came from... Mmmmmmm which means plenty more cookie dough! Yippeeeee!!!

Kasper794... That was always one of my favourite nursery rhymes. If I had thought, I should have drwan a face on it first...lol!

Chica :) awwww, no worries. Anywayz I really appreciate your tips and advice with the photography techniques. You sound like you have the same cooking skills as me ... I'm sure we would have a "smashing" time in the kitchen...LOL!

Getty72 said...

Azzy, my goodness... what has your dog done to your garden....lol! It looks like "Time Team" have been searching for a long lost Roman Villa...lol! A great photo!! I hope you are okay... and keep smiling :)

Hiya Sue, thanks for your comment :) I love these challenges as they help me practice my photography whilst stretching my imagination a little at the same time!

Tint~ said...

This is perfect! Your focus is spot on and the interpretation of the theme is great. The colours are rich and true. I like it.

I was just thinking to myself that only a photographer would see a potential shoot in a kitchen disaster ;)

Getty72 said...

Meleah Rebeccah, thank you so much. And your photographs are truly inspiring too! You shold join one of the challenges... your photographs are always fantastic!!!

Tint~ Thanks.... I have enough kitchen disasters to fill an art gallery....lol!!!
