January 3rd - Pencil Sharpener

My (broken) pencil sharpener. It doesn't spin anymore if you shove a pencil in. Not enough power. Where's Tim Taylor when I need him? ;) The pencils are some that my daughter got in her stocking for Christmas. I arranged them one way, and she moved one. I liked her arrangement much better! Can you tell I'm using two different light bulbs on either side of the white box? ;)

I am LOVING the comments, everyone! Thank you so much! :D

And for everyone who thought this looked like a helmet: I saw that, but didn't think to actually try to fool you like putting a motorcycle with it or something. :P I wish I had thought of that yesterday!

Wow, that looked like a weird space helmet at first! Good pic!

At first I thought the pencils were rolls of wrapping paper and the green thing, a helmet. And then when I read that the green thing was a pencil sharpener that got me totally confused!

That's a lovely green coloured pencil sharpener you have there.

Those are pretty neat pencils! I love the brightness of the sharpener, and I love the creativity in different color lights on each side of the composition!

I thought it was a motor cycle helmet with huge poles next to it. I think this would have worked well with one of the pencils sharpened, and near the pencil sharpening hole. Nicely done with the lighting.

First thought:
Crash helmet and wrapping paper. xD

Nice shot actually, i see others also thought stuff like that.
I like pictures a which you can look twice.
Job well done! :)
