a right Royal balls up ~ 074/365

discarded rubber bands from the UK's Royal Mail service. The Communications Workers Union are currently holding 1- 2 days strikes on a weekly basis and it causing problems for a lot of small businesses. A militant dinosaur Union versus what seems like a pretty shitty management with the great British public caught in the middle.

 

A little bit of photoshop used here to erase the black thread used to suspend the ball just above the lovely piece of 5mm black gloss acrylic I bought yesterday.

 

Strobist SB900 on the little stand it comes , at 1/5 power with about 50cm / 45 degrees from subject with a folded piece of copy paper acting as a bounce fill just out of frame right. Triggered with on board flash
