This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

One of the oldest cultural traditions in South Carolina is the making of sweetgrass baskets.  It is a craft that was brought over on the slave ships from Africa in the mid 1800's and still practiced today.  The woman whose hands are pictured here also made the baskets shown below.

All photos were taken at an indoor market with the Nikon D7000 and 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens at ISO 800.
