Figured this was reflective how most of us boys (and some girls) played with their toys... setting up scenes and making the sound effects with our mouths. Just got the new 15mm lens and was impressed with it for the closeup work. Some new focusing techniques too I used on my K-3 that were like a lightbulb moment as to what I've been doing wrong all this years.

Anyway, the first thought was "Gunfight at the OK Corral" hence the blocks aligned to be "OK", but it wasn't really a corral, so I dumped that part of the name. Had to sneak in DPC and the BF is for "Boba Fett" and "DUMB" is a reference to how I felt the photo would be received on the site, LOL. Had no expectations it would do this well.

Dropped to the 6.1 range and has climbed above 6.4, but is slowly struggling back to that goal. With 12 hours left anything can happen of course.

I wonder how this would have done without "DUMB" being there. This is children's toys, and DUMB being so prominent just makes me sad. Sad because I imagine a child that thinks he's dumb.

unbelievably creative. From the moment you thought of it to its execution.
