Today’s Photo 101 theme – treasure – immediately brought to mind the treasures I have brought home from my travels. For this one, in particular, there is a multi-layered meaning of the idea of treasure.  This is a “chief’s basket” from Ghana; it is meant to hold an important man’s possessions, and it is much fancier than the typical baskets one finds in the markets.  For me, too, it is a treasure that reminds me of the trip I took to Ghana to meet the amazing local clients of a microfinance organization I was involved with at the time.
