P.S.: I did not alter the egg in any way. Didnt even boil or empty it.
(ok afterwards it went into an omelet, but that doesnt count )
my guess is that you balanced the egg on a pinch of salt for assistance, then once it was balanced on the salt, you carefully blew away the excess salt, leaving only the grains that were supporting the egg.
wow, that sounds like something cool to experiment with
but it was simpler than that...

Needed some coffee for the office today, so I stopped by a local market. I took several, none of them outstanding, but thought I'd post this one to the challenge. I'll post a couple of other ones to a different thread - mainly because I thought they were funny in some way. Another topic that I'm not very good at - or perhaps I just wasn't in the right frame of mind today, because I didn't like anything I took (and I spent the rest of lunch at the botanical gardens, my favorite place to take pictures).

I don't have any ideas, so I just shot what was on my desk.

Somebody needs to break the news to my 2 yr old daughter :lol:

Even though I'm a newbie, I'll try to be back later in the day with my attempt.

Note: This image is NOT to be reviewed for the challenge - it was taken on the morning of Dec. 31st 2006. But I feel the need to share it.

My wife ordered Scrambled Eggs and bacon at the only place we could find open in Owaka New Zealand. (We were in NZ for all of December - 21GB of images around 2600 between my son and myself)

These are not the way Americans expect scrambled eggs - looked like a souffle- she said they tasted wonderful along with the flat white (something you can not get here - the local barista's give you a cow lost in a snow storm sort of look)


Enjoy -- PDL
