Hmmm... Couldn't think of an idea. The only other thought I had was to take a picture of a plate with nothing but a few crumbs and call it "The best chocolate cake ever!"

Then I had this idea.

Last minute.

I was tired and headachy, and decided to make a mess anyway.

I then decided I needed feet, so I used my sons. Unfortunately, he was still attached to them, and he wasn't feeling well either. So neither of us had much fun. Although it was a blast purposely dropping an egg from 4 feet up in the air!

But it wasn't fun to clean up.

The cleanup took much longer than the shoot.

Much longer!

It wasn't fun.

Moral of the story: don't wait until last minute if you're going to do something nasty and messy so you can enjoy it!

Thanks for all the comments!

Those were fun! :D

Oh, this brings back memories! My daughters attempted to make me a cake once - by piling a heap of flour on the floor and mixing stuff into it. Love your photo, it just says it all.

Very awesome! I love it when someone meets the challenge by being outside of the box. Well thought out and well composed, lit, and photographed. 10

Very cute! I love the poder on the flow, and how it's different in thickness/whiteness. The footprint and eggprint are beautiful, and the tetured wood floor beneath shows up quite well.

A fun take on the challenge and a hell of a mess to clean up. The light seems a tad harsh.

Looks like this must have been a real fun one to shoot, let alone clean up afterwards, haha.

OH....MY....LOL! Very different take on the challenge. Love the humor in this one! Nice attention to adding details to the shot from the chocolate chips to cracked/dropped egg to the footprint seen in the flour scattered on the floor. The humor carries the shot and the idea holds much promise (6) but it just needs a little extra umph on the technicals....lighting appears a bit harsh and mayhap angle could be a tad lower to show more of the feet and legs and mayhap some of the kitchen drawers (just to strengthen the imagery of this being in the kitchen)
