6. Colorful or "Sharp as a tack"

Taken at work. I took a photo of these tacks all stuck in a white cardboard box first, but I didn't like the fact that you couldn't see their pointy tips, so I punched them half-way into a sheet of paper instead. I propped the paper up with 2 empty pop cans and curled it up 90 degrees to serve as the background as well. A second sheet of paper was used below the paper, but it fell in shadow which is why the bottom half is darker. I think it's effective. It was a fun way to spend the last 10min of my lunch break anyway, and got me a photo for the day at the very least... I've been falling behind!
