Everyday Life - The camera strap

Challenge #26 in the Things you'll see everyday series. Hosted by amicus70.
Challenge has finished
We are all addicted to photography. So I assume all of us own a camera with a camera strap. And this precious little thing - the strap, not the camera - is the theme of this challenge. I'm very curious, how you will make an absorbing picture of such an important camera part. And be aware the strap is an important part of the picture unless you don't want to be disqualified. I bought mine in 1990 in the Magic Kingdom of Disney World in Florida (see sample pic). Since then it go with all my new DSLRs.

6th place
I made this strap back in 1974 and use it still today. It was on my Olympus OM-D but I removed it to put the camera on a harness so I can shoot when I go on a trail ride. My riding is almost over for the year so I will put on my very comfortable leather strap.
