Hi, I'm Hans! :D What's up?

Rediscovering The Ingenuity In Youth
The original flip challenge
As I was thinking of what kind of picture I could capture that portrays the ingenuity of youth, I was reminded of my childhood days where we children would use anything as toys for fun. I recalled how we used these cheap erasers (like the ones in the picture) to play games like flipping the eraser on top of another eraser, or turning them into spinning tops by sticking pencil lead into the underside so it can spin.
When we were young, we never really give much though on the things that we do. While I was hunting down these erasers and while I was playing the eraser games with my friend who was assisting me with getting my shot for the exercise, I realized that we children are actually quite smart and inventive. You could say that I rediscovered our ingenious methods of spending time in school.
To get this shot, my friend and I had to work together to time the moment the eraser flies into the air as I wanted to capture it's trajectory in mid air. I used a high speed continuous drive mode to capture as many pictures as I can at one go to increase my chances of getting the shot I wanted.
