Day 103 – 02/16/11 – Switched

Today is another in the Fixtures series.  I was right twice when it comes to this series.  First, there are a whole lot of potential subjects.  And second, they are quite a stretch to shoot creatively.  I found that out when attempting to shoot a door hinge this evening.  That’s something I’ll have to come back to as today’s attempt came out… less than inspiring.

Nearly as ubiquitous as door handles (and hinges) are light switches, so they became the second image in this series.

You can tell this is posed, as only two of the three lights are on.  In reality, all three – along with virtually every other light switch in the house – are set to On.  For some reason the girls are as incapable of turning off lights as they are at shutting doors.  I’ve got a feeling we’re not the only parents with that particular challenge!

    I love how you make everyday, ordinary things interesting 🙂

  2. It’s a kid thing Jim, we have the same issue here!

    I really like the wood grain which is both in focus as well as OOF, very pleasing.

      Thanks David! I’ve heard somewhere that the three most common words a parent says to their kid are “Shut the door!” I can certainly believe it, and “turn off the light!” has to be a close second in the realm of common parental phrases 😉

    You made me smile with the comment about your girls, we don’t know that stuff costs when we are younger 🙂 Another great shot, I am really loving this series.

  4. Whhhat! This is so cool! I really, really like this. This could be something that could be used for like an electricity saving campaign or something, but it probably would have to be “off” not “on.” Sounds like a electric saving campaign is needed in your house anyway! Haha. 🙂 Great shot.
