Default Doors and Windows: Hail the Prints

I'm trying to be creative, here... Here's a shot through the open, drop-down door on my HP Officejet printer.

Like the "outside the box" thinking you are putting into this.

Definitely creative. Interesting the difference in lighting between the office lights and the light inside the printer.

Definitely thinking differently and you've confirmed my suspicion about the light in the printer. Somewhat like the light in the refrigerator.
Very clever.

Thanks, everyone!

There is a light in there, but I didn't think to mention that most of the lighting in this photo was from a lighted headband I received as a present last Christmas. My camera was on a tripod and I held the light in my hand for the shot.

BTW, this light is really handy for all sorts of things. It's got three different intensity levels and can even flash!

Ooh, very cool. Never thought of using a headlamp for things like this, great idea!

You were correct with your first comment, selvin. There is a light in there. When I took the shot, I just preferred the way it looked with the hand-held light. It made some of the things stand out a little more.

Here's my original pic with an arrow pointing to the little light bulb. It's actually fairly bright:
