Day 211—Basket

The Ghanese market basket I bought in Redding last year at the Farmers’ Market holds my photography books. I emptied it for this morning’s photo. I think the most interesting thing about this basket is its leather-covered handle so that is the focus of this photograph.

I used the lowest ISO so I needed a slow shutter speed and, of course, the tripod. And, if you look closely, the light coming through the weave of the body of the basket, blurred by the large aperture, produced some tiny bokeh, a nice bonus.
