Kind of going to hell in a hand basket shot! lol A fun composition! smile
Louis: It is a hand basket - they are souvenirs sold at the street side. I thought it would be a good pic - fun as well.

Now you've really got me curious, Louis. How big are these balls and what are they used for? Inquiring minds and all. I do like how you have showcased them for us!
Louis: Just bigger than a softball. They are just meant to be decorations, like a dry arrangement. Made from the round part of calabashes. Thanks for the comment Ginnie.

Ik heb dezelfde vraag zoals Ginnie! Die balletjes en hun ornamenten vind ik heel mooi- ja, de sepia toning geeft nog een bijzonder click or beter sfeertje erbij!
Louis: Dezelfde vraag verdient dezelfde antwoord smile Just bigger than a softball. They are just meant to be decorations, like a dry arrangement. Made from the round part of calabashes. Thanks for the comment Philine.
A sense of mystery in this photograph, Louis.
Louis: Yes, everyone is puzzling about these balls. You may have seen them in souvenir stands while you were here.
Fine capture Louis. I like the mysterious fell in it!
Louis: Thank you richard
