Texture Tuesday White eDition

its what's for breakfast

""White...is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black...God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white." -- G. K. Chesterton "

For some reason, without intention, this week seems to be all about color. Yesterday, was blue and today's Texture Tuesday theme is the color white. We are going to cover purple this week as the Magnetised by Life February challenge comes to a close, so I'm just going to go with it and pick a color for every day this week - or have it picked for me as it were.

Today's submission combines two of my favorite things that come in white - dishes and eggs. I do love eggs. Seriously, I eat them every day and sometimes twice (my cholesterol is perfect thank you). (If you are really into eggs like I am you might get a giggle out of this silly little video ode to eggs) For texture, I used Kim's "Plaster Squared" and desaturated it to remove some of the brownish tones.

While considering the color white, I came across this interesting website that explores it (and other colors as well) in depth. I was surprised to learn that there are more shades of white available commercially than any other color.

If it weren't for my coffee spilling problem, I would love to decorate in whites. I can barely even wear white without ruining it almost immediately. Maybe one day I'll have a white room like Kim, or maybe a semi-white room. :)

Today's Linkups



  1. I love your composition, perfectly balanced and it adds to the purity of the white theme :)

  2. Stylish! Great picture in white.

  3. Perfect subjects for the White Edition and lovely subtle texture work

  4. It would seem that eggs would be an obvious choice for this challenge, yet they never crossed my mind while looking for something white to photograph. You have created a beautiful bit of artography here. And I love that bowl.

  5. What a great idea to choose eggs! this is really nice!

  6. What a gorgeous photo...I share your love of eggs. I have one almost every morning for breakfast - great source of protein!

  8. I am beginning to really love white compositions. You did a fab job on this in all ways.

  9. Splendid idea... beautiful execution!

  10. What a wonderful homage to eggs...and to white! ;-) I once had white furniture....before I married. I would still love to decorate with white, but I doubt it will happen. I've chosen a lot of blue, instead.

  11. Love this photo...the light and white... beautiful! :)

  12. perusing the thumbnails at kim's cafe ~ your beautiful white eggs leaped out to me ...
