The Many Ways To Color Eggs

When I was a kid it seemed like there was just one way to color eggs.You put food coloring in with vinegar and water and then did your thing. Now there are so many different ways to do it. We had so many boxes that each promised a different kind of egg. Some were shiny, some were marbled, some looked like they had been rolled through sugar. I wonder what they will think of next year?

Getting Your Hands Dirty

With all of these new ways to color the eggs it seemed like using your hands has increased. The hand washing to get the dye out was extensive, and I don’t even think that really worked. I did like the way the process looked though so I made some shot of my step-daughter using her hands.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all of you out there. Today is a day to spend with family so I will make this post short. Tomorrow the blog will be back to talking about baseball, but today a more family centric post felt right.


Tonight I will break a rule that I guess was more of a guideline than a rule. Originally I wasn’t going to post pictures of the faces of people that I know. Last week though I did that posting a baseball picture. Tonight I didn’t have a good picture other than this so I decided that the rule had to be broken. I really liked this picture for some reason. We were just hanging out at the table tonight when she stated making faces for the camera. This one was an example of her pouting look. I converted the file to black and white to get rid of the distractions of the colors around her. Now that the rule is broken you may see a few more pictures as time goes on. As I usually do I used the 50mm lens inside. For some reason that is the go to lens in the house.

Yesterday was a busy Easter Sunday so I didn’t get around to posting my picture of the day. It was actually late at night before I even took my picture of the day. I took a few during the day, but I don’t like posting faces on the blog. It is a weird little rule that I have yet to break. Instead I have posted this picture of the basket that the Easter Bunny brought me yesterday. I am not bragging, but it was pretty good.

I thought that since tomorrow is Easter that I would find some kind of theme that shows a little about Easter. I guess I should say something that shows what the Easter holiday has become. Tonight we were making Easter cookies, and I liked this picture of one of the cut-outs left alone on the board after all was said and done. This was shot with my 50mm lens because after all I still have to use it every now and then. When it comes to low light inside I almost always use that lens now. Who knows what kind of shot that tomorrow will bring? Maybe the Easter bunny will bring something interesting to shoot.

Tonight was the beginning of decorating Easter Eggs. We got most of the coloring done, and some stickers on just one of them. I was taking some shots of the process, and of course I forgot to lower my ISO when I shot this so it is a little grainy. In the end though it gets the point across. I am sure that Wednesday I will have another egg shot to show you.
