This is one of my very favorite photos. Somehow it got dropped a while ago from the roster,
so I am reposting it.

There is a good story behind this, as with most of the photos. My neighbors Natalie and Fabrice have a fairly self-sufficient garden. I bring them American seed types to plant and then they in turn give me fresh eggs, lettuce, etc.

One day Fabrice came by with some lovely little brown eggs. They each had a number on them, the date that they were laid. As I am a sucker for typography, I loved the French school cursive numbers he wrote. I could not stand to eat them!

A week or so went by and I thought to myself, I had to eat these eggs! I went for a walk with Slaine and got the idea to shoot a remembrance of them when I got home.

I put them in the little antique cafe au lait bowl I had, took them out to the terrace and the antique cement top table and photographed them under the dappled light of the walnut tree.

It does not get any more romantic than this!

This photo looks fabulous at a large scale. I have sold several this way. It is dense and rich
and not as harsh as it looks on the computer screen. Remember, these are all printed on water color paper. I have sold several through designers and have this very print hanging in my kitchen in France.
