The truth is that when you are obsessed with photography you want to shoot everything and anytime. Fortunately, my husband has the same passion for analogic photography and my 6 years-old son has an extensive curiosity for everything. So, they understand my madness. And, when mom takes out the eggs from the fridge to make a ham and cheese omelet, they find it usual that she stops everything in order to take a few shots of the eggs first. Of course, these were not just any chicken eggs. They were home-raised by my parents-in-law in their village. They were small, perfectly similar and had a harmonious color degradation. The first was beige, the second light beige, and the third all white. I loved both color and the BW photos for their minimalistic elegance.
The previous week a photo contest “Shoot Something Simple” took place in Photocrowd. Photocrowd is a photo community and a platform for many photo contests where talented photographers from around the globe connect, get inspired, share their work. and participate in contests. I remembered this photo. Eggs are so common things to find and shoot and also their shape is simple. It was ideal for the contest and I was right … though I randomly say that! My photo ranked 29th in crowd voting among 744 photos and 650 photographers. Thank you so much Photocrowd and all the voters!
And, I’m feeling truly happy to share with you another example that inspiration is everywhere if you are willing to find it even in the simplest and most common things! After all, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication according to Leonardo Da Vinci!
Wish you all a beautiful day!
