Day 25: Door stop extension

The door stop is a modest thing, quietly getting on with it’s job of keeping the door open. I decided to attempt to reveal it’s true inner strength. Using lengths of wood I extended out from the door stop across the room. The extension does not touch the floor, it is purely supported by the solitary door stop and the strength of it’s wedge under the door.

While I’m a long-time admirer of your work, I think your sister’s creation of an actual new human being wins for today. 😉

I am humbled by the sweetness of the nod to your Neice. I think anyone would extremely proud to have such an image to celebrate their birth.

And those doorstops, ay? Immoveable (Although I suppose that’s the point) Still can’t ignore the brilliant simplicity, yet specificity of the laws of physics. Such a robust static entity almost infitinely heavy in it’s stalwart strength, yet easily removed with fingertips merely by sliding it in one direction. Yum.
