GyuEun Park 1001

This is a photo of a dark beige picnic basket that is on top of a white and red checkered picnic blanket. The horizontal and vertical red lines on the blanket that cross each other become darker than those that do not. The blanket’s on a field of light olive green grass, occupying the bottom half of the photo, except for the bottom left corner, where the grass shows.

The basket and the cheese board in front of it are in the same angle: the corner of the board that’s closest to our point of view is cut off by the bottom of the photo. If it were to be shown, it would have been in the middle of the photo. The opposite corner of the board isn’t shown, as it is covered by a white sheet of cheese paper that’s under a thick slice of blue cheese. The corner of the board that is the closest to the left of the photo is close to the basket, but not touching it. This corner is facing the bottom left corner of the photo. Therefore, the cheese board and the basket are not parallel to the horizontal bottom cut of the photo.

The cheese was probably cut from a cheese wheel, as the side opposite of the pointy end is round. The pointy end is facing the direction of the bottom left corner, just like one of the corners of the board. The visible side of the cheese is darker than its top, touching the shadow of the cheese which is on the paper. The shadow of the paper is on the board, connected to that of the cluster of light green grapes that is in front of the basket. The cluster has 8 grapes: 3 on the top, 2 in the middle, and 3 in the bottom. The two top and bottom right grapes are partially covered by the paper. The top left grape is the darkest, from the shadow of the cloth in the basket.

In the center of the photo, there’s a knot that connects the body and the handle of the picnic basket. The entire handle’s not shown in the photo, as it’s cut midway at the top of the photo. The handle curves left as it moves up, and the highest visible point of the handle’s slightly more on the left of the photo compared to the knot. The other knot, or the other end of the handle, is located around the midpoint of the left half of the photo. Both knots look like multiple thick strings that are curved horizontally. The handle looks like multiple thick strings that are twisted together towards right. Both knots meet the white and red checkered border of a white cloth that covers the majority of the basket. The horizontal and vertical red lines that cross each other become darker, just like the design of the picnic blanket that is below the basket.

One of the corners of the cloth almost touches the bottom left corner of the photo. However, the bottom left corner is filled with grass. In this corner, there’s one blade of grass that is sticking up, going past the height of the cloth. It does not pass the white part of the cloth, stopping in the middle of the border. The cloth is rectangle, not square. Therefore, there are two sides that are longer than the other two sides. One of the longer sides of the cloth that is farther from our point of view, is almost parallel with the closer side, but folds three times in a V shape. The middle V, which is a bigger than the other two, is folded because of the knot. On the closer side, the knot of the basket that is closer to our point of view makes the cloth fold upward, making it a flipped V shape. Only two corners of the cloth are visible: they are closer to our point of view, so they are in front of the basket, not behind. The cloth goes past the ends of the basket, and the corner that is close to the right side of the photo touches the picnic blanket, draping over the basket.

There’s a cluster of red-violet grapes near the left side of the handle: the cluster’s made up of 5 grapes on the top, 6 in the middle, and 4 in the bottom. The top 5 grapes are divided by a dark brown stalk: 3 on the left and 2 on the right. The stalk reaches, but does not pass the height of the wine bottle behind it. The bottom left grape is partially covered by a pear that is the same color as the green grapes in front of the basket. The dark brown stalk of the pear points in our direction, but gradually curves to the right. The stalk starts from the left side of the fruit, which is laying down. The shadow of the red-violet grapes is casted on the right side of the pear, after the stalk ends. The shadows of the top of the pear and its stem are casted on the white side of the cloth. In the shadow, the stem’s facing our direction. Behind the red-violet grape, there’s a black wine bottle that is also laying down. The red capsule of the wine bottle is darker than the red parts of the blanket. The bottle is not laying down straight, as its base is slightly past the knot that is farther from our point of view. Its shoulder and neck are lifted by the end of the right side of the basket, which is higher than the bottom of the basket. The cheese board and paper are closer to the right end of the photo than the capsule. Behind the wine bottle, there’s another pear. Its top half is visible, and its stem curves to the right, its end being covered by the handle of the basket.
