As I cracked eggs into the skillet, I had one leftover from a carton from the store, and three that I picked up from a local farm. My sister-in-law's mother raises chickens for eggs and meat on a few acres about 30 minutes from us. (The woman is a dynamo who also works full time, quilts AMAZING pieces and does about three hundred other projects all at once that leave the rest of us feeling like slackers!) Anyway - with SIL back in this neck of the woods, it's much easier to pick up eggs from her mom.
People that raise chickens know, there's SUCH a difference between a store-bought egg and an egg from free-range, well-fed chickens.
So, for this week's "Store", a thought on how and where we get our food, as you can see the health of the farm-fresh eggs shining in their orange-yellow yolks, compared to the egg from our local store.

I'll let you guess which egg is from the store. *Hint: it's not the lighting that's making one of them a different color!*
I'm pretty pleased with the clarity of this shot before it was time to flip the eggs. I can tell I'm getting *slowly* more knowledgeable about how to set my camera to get what I want out of it.....only a couple more years of these posts and I should be able to get the hang of it!
