Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

What I discovered is I shoot a lot of red.

I blurred my eyes to spot purple in the archives.

Yes, I  made the rainbow jello to photograph.  It took 5 hours. I got the recipe from my daughter Laura who found it on the web here 

The one pictured is not spiked and no one ate it either.  It is still in my freezer to slice and photograph with light coming through the jello like stained glass.

Purple views, white balance setting askew but it works for the challenge.

A compendium of purple.

Fellow bloggers links are at the Daily Post at WordPress. (Thanks to Jo I know how to get on the list now.)

and the cake is by Aubrey’s Bakery in Steubenville Ohio for Justin and Vicky’s wedding


Onion Skins Colored Eggs

A bit too much sunlight on the eggs but they were a reddish color.

My sister made these beautiful colored eggs.  She peeled the paper skins off a mesh bag of yellow onions, down to the onion part.  Boiled the eggs and skins together slowly for a long time.  The eggshells became a rich reddish color.  After the dinner on Monday we played the egg game, trying to crack the other person’s egg with yours. Fredi suggested using the smaller tip like a torpedo.  His coaching worked for me and my egg was the winner, although the other guests might have felt it fixed, with the hostess’s sister winning! You win if your egg remains uncracked at the end of the game.  Mary said it had Armenian and Greek roots (the egg game.)  A competitive group!
