Camera Testing

Been exploring more photography and trying not to forget what I’ve learned so far. Easter Sunday, with it’s beautiful weather and a few hours to kill after church, was a great day to play around at a cute little park in Frisco.

I also took some photos of a cute project I did to decorate for Easter. The eggs were super easy and quick to make.

While waiting for the food I cooked to finish, I went in the backyard and took a few more photos of our pets.

Easter Egg Fun

Nick and I enjoyed dying eggs our own chickens laid for Easter. It was interesting to see how the dye made certain imperfections in each egg stand out. Our chickens lay delicious eggs, but they are hardly ever the perfect shape you find in stores. I love seeing the odd shapes we get sometimes. Every once in a while, we get a super oval egg instead of the slightly more pear shapes you commonly see.

Egg Dying Kit

When we were ready to dye, we had saved up ten eggs, so that is how many we hard boiled and played with. We had three normal dyes and three “marble” dyes. To turn a dye into a marbling dye, you just need to add a tiny bit of canola oil to the dye.

Egg Dye

I think it was quite fitting that we used our chicken mugs to dye our chicken eggs.

Here was our little setup. You just can’t dye Easter eggs without a little “Running Man” going on in the background. Can’t beat Arnold with a beard.

I hope you are all having an amazing Easter weekend and get to do something fun and colorful as well!
