Photo Challenge Week # 3 - EGG

Hi Every One.  Sorry for the late timing in getting the Photo Challenge post up.
I had a carton with one left and it was stuck to the carton and I couldn't get it out.
Hence a new carton of eggs.
Eggs can be tricky as they bounce light, they are quite plain and a white egg is even more difficult to photograph well.
I used brown eggs as I love the color of a brown egg. 
I ended up taking 92 photos to get some I liked.  I loved the way they look in the carton all lined up and the shadows created by the box, plus the colors against the grey box.
I thought it photographed well against the print on the box.
You can see all the little beads of sweat that started to form.
And the speckled shell is lovely.
I love the Freckles on this egg.
.....and the varying shades of a dozen.

This Challenge really made me wish I had a duck, or a farm
so I could get pictures on the nest.......

Next Weeks Challenge for September 10th is
Capture a photo that brings another dimension to the picture with the use of
