While my gorgeous visitor is under running water somewhere upstairs I'm sneaking in a blog post and catching up with C&C Photography's photo assignements. Thought it was time to improve my photographic skills.
"Ange, this will help when you want to take pictures of your own work!" I said to myself.
1st assignment: photograph A WHITE EGG
Try and find a white egg in France!
Camilla suggested I paint it ;-)
In the end Skippy's parents came to the rescue.
One of their chickens had laid an original egg
It was cream!
That'd do the trick
Until I realised that, no matter how many times I took a photograph of that egg, I could never again reproduce the same shot as I had no idea what buttons I was fiddling with on my camera. Oh well ...looking on the bright side, I never knew a cream coloured egg could be so interesting...
Then there was composition - I'll post that later in the week.
For now, I'm still onto the colour.
Guess which one I chose.
If you can guess, it means I got my assignment right!
In the mean time, there's more of that gorgeous colour in the sky outside and I feel the pull of reality tearing me away from the virtual. That's my round about way of saying I'm sorry I haven't been popping over much in the last couple of days but tourism takes up time!
Now, after a run through the green pastures that surround our house this morning I have to get Kim into the colourful world that is the kids' candy section at the local supermarket before getting dirty and dusty in a couple of Gimont brocantes...
In return, Kim has just explained to me how APERTURE works... I may be able to complete these photography assignments yet ;-)
Have a 'sunny side up' kind of day !!
