Check Out My Nuts*

I built a lightbox last weekend. This is my first shot. Mia collected the nuts and I snapped them.

*Yes, I'm 12.

Wonderful shot. Well done!

I always suspected you had attractive nuts.

*am also 12

I don't even know exactly what a lightbox is, but that looks cool, so I'm guessing you did it right!

I want specs on the light box. I want to buy one, the hubby thinks I should build one . . .

Details, I need details . . . or a measured drawing with supply list.

lovely nuts you have there

Posted by: donna at September 22, 2007 3:33 PM

nice work.

(especially for a 12-year-old)

I always figured your nuts would be hairy.

*jumping on the 12 bandwagon

Funny, I thought they'd be bigger than that (what, like you didn't think I'd get in on the nut jokes?)

Where'd you get the lightbox? I've been wanting one. I just don't want to spend an arm and a leg.

Dude, your nuts are HUGE!

Posted by: Pamalamadingdong at September 22, 2007 9:15 PM

No wonder you attract weirdos in the bathroom with nuts like that.

I have no idea whatsoever what a lightbox is. However, very interesting picture of nuts. :)

Posted by: Cassandra at September 22, 2007 9:51 PM

Ooooh! Nice shot! Where did you get your instructions for making a light box? I need to do that myself...

Posted by: ironic1 at September 22, 2007 10:31 PM

Hmmm...I too am wondering about building your own it hard? nuts...:)

Posted by: Amy at September 23, 2007 1:32 AM

I just feel sorry for you that you have 5 nuts. Nicely shaped as they are, there are still 5 of them.

Posted by: aimee/greeblemonkey at September 23, 2007 2:06 AM

Awesome! What'd you use?

Posted by: Lisa at September 23, 2007 7:10 AM

OK, I have wanted a lightbox since forever, and also considered building much did you spend in supplies and how long did it take? Have any tips on how to build one without spending more in materials than it costs to buy one on ebay?

In this house, the nuts run it hee!!!
Good pic :-)

What is a lightbox? Whatever it is those are some nice nuts.

Posted by: kali at September 23, 2007 10:47 PM

Your nuts are lovely. Happy shooting with your new light box!

Posted by: angela at September 23, 2007 10:56 PM

Please give details on the lightbox-building. Excellent nut shot.

Posted by: Melissa at September 23, 2007 11:25 PM

*As am I. I laughed my ass off.

Nice nut shot!

I have been researching building lightboxes for awhile now...just never got around to doing it. Care to share how you did it? I would be eternally grateful. =)

I've been researching how to build a lightbox for awhile now...just never got around to actually building it. Care to share your secret? I would be eternally grateful!!

Great your nuts! =)

Although I have no idea what a light box is for or how one is built, I totally want one. :)

Posted by: Tink at September 24, 2007 5:06 PM

Please write a post about how you built the lightbox. There seems to be a lot of interest and I would love to know too.

Posted by: sarah at September 24, 2007 9:27 PM

Nice nuts. I could add a joke in here about nuts but I'll save that for another day.

I, too, am curious about your lightbox. Currently I'm using a poor man's lightbox consisting of a $4, white, Ikea hamper, poster board and some daylight bulbs. It works sufficiently enough when used with a tripod. I got the tip here:

nice nuts.

I, too, am twelve... in a family of 12 year-olds:

I cannot believe you let the entire internet see your nuts! :) How did you make the light box?
