A unique mailbox presentation for the league bowler. But wait, is it real?
I am a league bowler and have been for many years. My mother was a league bowler when I was a kid and I joined my first league somewhere around nine years old. Many years later I planned on making a “bowlers mailbox”. Mailboxes have been customized for ever but I haven’t heard of, or seen anything like this. It is quite simple, yet distinctive. I worked this photo to great detail to make it as realistic as possible. The actual, real photo is below.
I photographed bowling balls separately in various positions and assembled them in photoshop.
In addition to stacking them, I added ball shadows and reflections to add realism.
I then photographed some nice Marathon grass from a neighbor’s yard and added the grass and more plants to the background.
Throw in a shadow from the mailbox onto the grass and it’s looking pretty good.
The final touches are the graphics added to the mailbox. I created this with the intention of creating this mailbox for our yard, minus the address. I had a pro shop guy working on drilling the bowling balls with a hole straight through the ball so I could stack them on a pipe, but he had problems with drilling a continuous hole through the whole ball without breaking out the hole. So that put the project on hold. I have since inquired with another pro shop guy, and he says he can do it, but I haven’t continued with the project, as of now.
