2015 CHALLENGE WEEK 41: MACRO – FASTENERS

I knew right away the image I wanted for this week’s theme. I used the flip-the-lens around method, and had to work real hard to keep steady. Some of these bone-marrow transplant meds can make me shaky and whatnot. Everything was stationary and/or mounted to a tripod, other than the reversed lens, that I had to shakily hold. Plus I used a well lit bathroom so I could the quickest shutter speeds.

This is the Bolt Catch Release on an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, more commonly referred to as a Modern Sporting Rifle.

For all that care, and everyone else who should but just know any better. This rifle was empty of any magazine, and the chamber was empty. As all safe law abiding firearms owners, I operate at the highest levels of safety and sound judgement.
