Another Calendar Girl Pic

Aaaah, not a girl… a basket!

From the “Baskets of the Cottage Girls” Calendar I photographed last November and have been periodically sharing some of the images.

Since it’s now spring and people are getting very tired of winter, I thought these sweet little mini pails were next to be shown off. To all those still caught in the cold winter, summer is just around the corner!

These were not the easiest to capture since they were so tiny! For the second image, the small rocks cannot be more than an inch in size but they seemed to slightly take the attention away from the main attraction.

As a result, the first photo is the one that made it in the calendar. While setting up the shot, by putting a shorter distance between me and the subject versus the subject and the background and zooming the lens to its maximum, created the blurred background which frames these mini baskets nicely.
