I didn’t actually eat any of these eggs on the bar at Wild Fig in Aspen, but they caught my eye.
Looking back at some recent posts, I realize that eggs have been a recurring meme. Both visually and as a food choice, it’s been coming up more and more.
Generally, they’ve been fried and the bright yellow yolks have drawn me into them, whether spilling out of the b.e.l.t. at Swift Half, on top of the Croque Madame at Rouge or in the Bacon and Eggs appetizer at Lulu Wilson that I lit up with my iPhone.
But these eggs, still in their shell brought me back to my High School Photography class. One of our first assignments to photograph eggs, composed in whatever way we’d like. I don’t remember what I came up with and I doubt I really ‘got’ the potential compositions that can be done with the shapes and curves aesthetically.
Every now and then I think about going back to some of those old assignments (that I can remember) as exercises or practice. I make no promises, but if I do, I’ll be sure to post them.
