Week 23 – Down Low

June 13, 2011

focus52Blog Down low … now there’s a different prompt! I thought about using my macro converter to get some bugs or something in the garden. But every time I went to the basement, and I looked at the mess on the floor (it looks like Toys R Us vomited all over the place, it’s insane), I knew that’s what I wanted to capture. I just had to wait for the right light, as I really didn’t want to use my flash.

And as it turns out, I had a lot of fun getting down low to capture the colorful entertainment that my kids enjoy. Jack soon saw what I was doing, and he was in on the fun then too.

I love how he mixed his Cars with the Little People

And this was the ultimate inspiration for my choice of subject matter … the games Jack mixed up all over the floor. None of the other kids will pick it up, and I just haven’t had the time to sort everything back into their proper boxes. Just a nightmare. It’s on my list, but it’s pretty far down there … I might have to resort to bribing my kids to do it. You can’t tell how bad things are from this angle, but trust me, it’s bad. There’s at least a half dozen game boxes emptied, to include Yahtzee, Candyland, Monopoly, and Life.
