Week 7 - Plug

Week 7 - Plug

I really didn't want to shoot an electrical plug or anything obvious like that. I was trying to think of things that plug holes; a pacifier in a baby's mouth, more babies in the house. 

Then I stepped on a Nerf dart. Man!! Yip has three or four different Nerf dart guns and I am ALWAYS picking up Nerf darts all over the house. 
 But...Nerf darts PLUG up a hole in the Nerf gun. Great!! I've got my subject. 

1/125 sec., f 7.1, ISO 1600

I only got four pictures taken before Yip got tired of modeling for me. If he had been a bit more patient I would have played around a lot more with depth of field. As it was, I was probably really lucky to get these shots. HA! 

1/100 sec, f 6.3, ISO 1600

Next week's, Week 8, theme is Fall.
Well wrong time of year to shoot pics of pretty leaves.
I sure hope I don't have to take a picture of boys falling. That could only mean an injury.

Anyone else out there doing any kind of photo project? 


  1. I was rinsing out the milk bottles after feeding the calves this morning, and one of the nipples fell just right in the tub to plug the hole at the bottom. Interesting second use for such a thing. :-)

  2. First thing I thought of was a pacifier too! Fresh out of those here too. ;) Amazing you got a kid to sit still while trying this one out.

    Would it be cheating if I used a picture I took last fall for my picture next week?


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
