An egg is a lovely thing to behold. But, as the old adage goes, the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. For you, a beautiful egg might be poached and drizzled with hollandaise sauce, topping Canadian bacon on an English muffin. For someone else, it could be as simple as a fried egg "sunny-side-up" or hard-boiled and sliced in a sandwich. For me, a beautiful egg is an omelet stuffed with cheese.
But for this photo, the egg has been left as it began, in its original form; what has been called the "perfect shape." And to compliment its simple, elegant contours, I chose a plain white bowl and a white background. To complement the theme of multiple whites, I gave the image a high key finish.
