Default Found in the basement

Finally deciding to go clean up the camera mess I'd made in the basement, I went down into that dim realm and found... Why, yes! My favorite photo victim, and oh lucky me, the tripod was set at just the right height. He was so intent on what he was doing that I was hardly more than a dust mote in his mind. He was focused, but so was I. (Note: this is not the version originally posted. See remarks further down and, in particular, see Sergio's solution to the "orange thing.")

Good shot, and nice lighting!

Do you often misplace people in your basement?

Thanks, Peter.

Basements are designed for misplacement:

("Where's my...?"
"In the basement."
"How'd it get there?"
"You put it there."
"Did not.")

This misplacement includes sons and other such anomalies of life.

He does look very intense on whatever he is doing. Good shot Barbara.

Thanks, guys. Some of the work I was doing yesterday got me concentrating on light as the subject of photographs, so when I looked at my son, what I saw was the light on his face. Now, if I could only continue seeing the light. (Yeah, I know, but it was irresistable. :P )

Phil, he was intent on cataloguing scenes in his digital camcorder. Lucky for me, the job couldn't bear interruption.

I discovered this in the group I'd taken of my son last night in the basement. I passed over it originally because, in the thumbnail, it looked way too dark. Before discarding photos, I always put them up on the screen to make sure I really want to trash them. When I put this one up, I was amazed at how it didn't look like a photograph at all. Mind you, I've done very little to it other than clean up a little in the background. Anyone have an answer as to why this looks more like an illustration than a photo?
