Tonight I wanted to do something easy and fast to get some time to prepare the luggage. It is almost Christmas! So I turned to my macro lens to do the work for me. To smooth the reflection in the shadow below the ball I just wet the table with a bit of water.

Pimientos del piquillo, aka piquillo peppers, are typical from the north of Spain and very very yummy.

As you may notice I did good use of ibuprofen. I think it really helped in the first stages of the inflamation. For this shot I put a flash right behind the empty blister to get some light through the white plastic. For this purpose the blister was angled using a sophisticated AAA battery (rechargable!). Fancy, eh?

Compression bandage

Yesterday was the ice, today the compression bandage I am using to easy the pain of my injury. This one was kind of difficult to execute. I wanted a  macro shot of the bandage I was wearing, so I had to pose and at the same time get the right focus on the other end of the camera. I am not a contortionist and this turn out to be more difficult than I anticipated.

And the sea of sticks opened
