Day 27 of 365 - "Toys. When you're not looking" project

Quest for cake...

We celebrated my Grandmother's 90th birthday today up at my Parent's house with lots of family from three states, great food and, of course, toys. 

Shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 28-70mm F2.8 AFS lens @ 28mm.  Aperture priority mode, F16, ISO 100, spot metering.  I had a Nikon SB900 speedlight on camera in TTL mode with a large sized Rogue Flashbender with diffusion panel to soften the light like a mini softbox. 

In 2013, I'm doing a 365 shot a day project with the theme "Toys. When you're not looking". The idea is to capture familiar toys dealing with the situations and challenges that life throws at them in the real world, just like a human would.  You can follow the progress of the project on
