Egg appreciation

I took this photo yesterday while out to breakfast.


I've done a little food photography, but not a lot. It's never really won me over. Partly because I love food and touching food over and over, moving it to different places, changing a dribble here, touching it some more, makes it all a pretty unappetising process. 

Ever done an ice cream shoot? 4 hours of melty stickiness and you're not likely going to want to eat it ever again.

But there's something about this little scene that got me kind of excited. It's just an egg. But the colour of yolk and the little blue tiles, the perfect amount of light coming through the window and teeny tiny spoon made me want to take a picture. Capture a little moment of breakfast peace and colourfulness before the day began.
