    Hello all. I was getting acquainted with my new dslr and trying some of the manual features and playing around with some old manual focus lenses. I came up with this and wondered what you thought. This is 2 forks intertwined and a toothpick going through both of them which will then balance on a head of another toothpick (or in this case a skewer).
    Techincal details: ISO 200, f/4, shutter 1/3", 45mm focal length. Not sure if I needed a slightly wider aperture to get the tines on the other fork in focus, or if it was being moved slightly by the breeze of the a/c.

    Anyway, here it is.

    Very cool shot. It really impresses me when people can take every day objects, arrange them and photograph them and have them look interesting.

    Maybe I'm just biased because you use a pentax :)

    Well Johnboy this is proof that boredom can inspire! I am not sure what the significance of the toothpick and the skewer play here but it does make me wonder so that is a good thing I think! : )

    The significance of the toothpick is to make a fulcrum which rests upon the skewer thus allowing the forks to balance upon the head of the skewer. Here's another pic as it came out of the camera.
