One of my favorite kitchen tools is my spider. I use it for straining pasta, skimming broth, or retrieving hammocks (ed. note: only when I’m cooking outside ;-)! yikes, that auto speller sure has a mind of its own! I typed ham hocks) and veggies when I make soup. I love soup. I haven’t been doing any cooking lately. I was away for ten days and since my return, I have spent most of my time worrying about Famous Mo’s, not cooking. But yesterday was the autumnal equinox and fall means soup! So, I plan to start cooking steaming pots of soup and then my spider will get a workout. Today’s challenge theme is “in the kitchen” and I think the shape of the spider makes an interesting subject. And, using a large aperture, I got lots of bokeh.
