“Playing at work”

The Challenge

Mui-Ling Teh was inspired by the recession for the next challenge! She says “When it gets overwhelming we may begin to loosen our consciousness; we may be humming “just keep swimming, just keep swimming…”; we may be counting sheep, folding paper planes at our desk or doodling away…”
“The entries should present something that is used for the purpose of work (whether for a job or for school) but which is instead being played with or used for something fun (e.g. pick up sticks played with pencils, paper planes folded from business documents, etc).”

Remember – items MUST be SMALL & shots MUST be CLOSE-UP.
