- Beginning & End -
So familiar are eggs to us, however, that in the eighteenth century they were referred to as cackling farts, on the basis that chickens cackled all the time and eggs came out of the back of them.

so many different meaning in one photo, I can see several things. Absolutely love it Rosa!ReplyDelete
Even though this is thrilling and spooky, it is absolutely wonderful. The fading of the skull goes absolutely perfect with the faint egg. It's absolutely wonderful.ReplyDelete
