Shot of the Day #173: The Glowing Ghost
Shot with Nikon D90. Click to enlarge.
While I was having a hootenanny with the other Daddies yesterday, Bri went to IKEA to look at baby-friendly coffee tables and found this odd, light-up toy/Nite-Lite hybrid (called "SPOKA") which she bought for Remy in hopes to get his attention away from keeping us up at night (last two evenings were, how do you say....ROUGH? But he's sick so I can't hate him TOO much, right?).
The toy was actually pretty cool; a soft rubber play-thing that looked like a ghost in an 8-Bit video game with a rechargable light that glows when you depress it's head. There was something about the deep blue hue that looks fantastic on "film" so in trying to get Plissken to bed, we put him in his automated rocking swing and placed the SPOKA in front of him, and it actually kept his attention longer than a toy usually does. Naturally, i pulled out the Nikon....
Like all of the toys, we gave it a name: "Boo Dude" after the cult hit FREAKED. We're nerds, what did you expect?
