Late this afternoon, I left my Periodontist’s office in Fair Oaks, discouraged by the news that I face yet another round of root planing followed by site specific antibiotics but encouraged that Dr. Carson prescribed the antibiotic that allows me to continue to consume a glass or several of wine while the antibiotic does its thing. Sandy (my long-time dental hygienist and friend — who introduced me to “Words with Friends” a few years ago), I’ll see you next Wednesday! I can’t guarantee my sobriety.
Since it was almost 4:30 (my appointment ran well past its allotted time today) and I hadn’t yet taken my photo of the day, I drove around the corner to nearby Old Fair Oaks Village, expecting to get a few photos of the famous Fair Oaks chickens. I was delighted to find the Wednesday Farmers’ Market in full swing. Oh, happy day. Just what I needed to lift my spirits. I actually found and photographed a few chickens but what caught my eye were the colorful and beautifully woven market baskets from Ghana. I already own two and resisted buying a third but the vendor still graciously allowed me to photograph his wares and ogled my camera; he actually knew about the D800 so we had a lengthy conversation about the camera, my Plantronics wireless headphones (I was wearing them because I was expecting a phone call), and Siri, the voice that lives in my iPhone. Just give me a few minutes to wax ecstatic about my camera, or my iPhone and any worries I have disappear. To top it off, today’s challenge theme is “mystery” so I decided the contents of any one of these baskets would be a mystery.
This venue gave me the opportunity to take some photos in direct sunlight, indirect light, and facing the sun. I included one of each.

One thought on “Day 172—And the Mystery? What’s In The Basket?”
Wow – what a day!!! Hope you are enjoying that glass of wine. Love your photos- I photographed similar baskets last year- I love them!
