Bought a bag of roested peanuts this evening, turned out to be rotten peanuts.

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.
