The Peep-tastic photo challenge
Easter will soon be upon us. I love Easter. Not for any religious reasons. I love the candy. The colours. The imagery … bunnies and eggs and baby chicks. Oh my. It is All.So.Freakin’.Cute.
Easter is a very photogenic family holiday, and there is almost nothing as photogenic as those lovely little Peeps. Oh, you know, those dollops of yellow dye#2, corn syrup, gelatin and lord knows what else that barely look like the chicks they are supposed to ressemble? Yeah. Those. You have to admit, they make excellent photo fodder.
We eat one package of them exactly once a year. And this year, I’m going to set up a big Peeps photo shoot.
And I’m hoping you some of you will join me for a big peeps-related photosharing exTRAvaGANza. Marla? Lex? I’m looking right at you, but I also know that there are a lot of other supercreatives out there as well.
Anyway, here’s how it’ll work:
Buy Peeps. Pose them. Freeze them. Melt them. Pile them in your mouth. Take photos. Lots of photos. Be creative! Post the best photos on your blog. Make sure you let us know in the comments below. If you can, post them in your Flickr with the tag “fishbowlpeeps,” that way we can look at them all as a group.
That’s it! You have until April 7 to post your photos. (I know that Peeps have a best-before date. I’m not heartless you know. Eat them when you’re done!)
Good luck! I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
