New York City has a habit of doing that more often than not to those open to its sense of occasion and possibly planned spontaneity.
And to this fine city comes the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt - given that this project will allow you, dear NYC reader, to participate even more freely in www.ishotkatemoss.com plus the proceeds of this egg endeavor will head to two charities, we are more than happy to promote it:
"On Tuesday, April 1 to Thursday, April 17 the world’s leading artists, fashion designers, architects, photographers and jewelers will be creating 300 unique two-foot egg sculptures that will be hidden throughout Manhattan and the boroughs. These eggs will be hunted down by the public via various social media channels and participants will be entered for a chance to win weekly prizes of Fabergé Mini Eggs. Beginning Friday, April 18 to Saturday, April 26, the culmination of the hunt, all egg sculptures will be displayed at Rockefeller Center and auctioned with all proceeds benefiting the Elephant Family and Studio in a School charities."

So why do we care?!?
Because there we were today, idling along Broadway as we
came towards 28th St and lo and behold we tripped on an egg.
Not just any egg, mind you. A golden egg!
Bruce Weber, "celebrity fashion photographer", had
completely papered his egg in images of kate ...

The Key Dates of this undertaking, for your reference, are:
* The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt begins April 1st, 2014
* All eggs nest together in one location April 18th – 26th, 2014
* Grand Auction April 22nd, 2014

And yes, this blog is committing to post every day beginning tomorrow (April Fools') - as the hunt officially gets underway until the egg is no longer on display - our favorite ishotkatemoss-on-bruceweber's-egg submissions!
So for those in NYC, head to Broadway and 28th with your SLR, smart phone, point & shoot or other device and Observe, Slow Down, Shoot and Submit! For those not in this fine and fair city you'll just have to shoot kate through the more traditional distorted, deteriorated or derelict means ... or lay your own egg!
