One of our many props, a small woden box with a hole in the bottom so that it can be placed over a light fitting.
The bulb in the box is wired to a dimmer switch so it can be made very dim.

I pushed the remote release with my toe lol


OMG I can't believe it, 1 year this week since I joined DPC and I get my first ever ribbon.
Thanks so much to everyone who voted and commented

But still a great picture and an excellent result.

Well done Connor.

I love this, hope for top 10 for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, this could have worked in both challenges. :-) I suppose that hidden treasures had fewer entries, though. I love the idea. Reminds me a bit of pulp fiction, but I think you executed it well. I think I would have liked a bit more brightness or some more saturation to the color, though. Perhaps a curves adjustment to increase brightness and contrast? Overall I like the idea. 6
