I get real pleasure out of looking at simple well-made objects like brooms. Perhaps not so much pleasure out of actually using them.
We have the same broom in Iran, But never use in these days ;)

@Abbas عباس: Thank you, Abbas.
its the door that got my attention! Certainly dont get well crafted and carved doors like that in the UK. nice.
15 Mar 2008 7:29am
@Rhys: Thanks, Rhys. We actually had a Kashmiri in Oman do the carving and a carpenter here made the door and set in the carving.
Unusual ! But I like the light, the composition. A very nice shot.
15 Mar 2008 7:31am
@Calusarus: Thank you, Calusarus. It was just for fun.
Very nice! We have plenty of grass-brooms here in South AFrica - they are excellent to sweep outside areas and loose mats. Nice composition!

@Ina: Thank you, Ina. Great information about brooms where you are.
i was actually more attracted by the door with its exquisite carvings:) This broom looks like its going to be a good one:)
15 Mar 2008 7:55am
@tyan: Yes. I hope it will do the job. Thank you, Tyan.
That broom makes the image jump from the screen! What do you think the broom was doing there and, moreover, upside down?!

@Japanalia: Well, Gabriela. If I ever need a detective I'll know who to call. What an astute comment. Thank you so much.
There is a proverb we have over here, "New brooms clean well". Sometimes too well?
The carved door is exquisite. A beautifully composed photo, Michael!

@Betty: I appreciate that. Thank you, Betty.
A beautifully composed shot, Michael. The lovely door does steal the show…but it is a nice broom…well-made, I suspect…serves its purpose well. Have a nice weekend.
15 Mar 2008 10:49am

Nice shot. Interestig & simple :)

I agree. And it looks so good propped up against that very nice door.

@Viewfinder: Great comment. Thank you, VF.
LOL totally with you on that one Michael, love the design of the door, and the broom really does add that special homey touch :)
15 Mar 2008 11:58am
@Lorraine: Thanks so much, Lorraine. I really like your comment.
The broom is as well-crafted as the door . . a simple shot like this carries so much impact. I like your narrative!

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you, Ronnie. I really appreciate that.
Very nice composition, and you are right, simple traditional objects can be very elegant. As for the door, I remember a photo with flowers you put up, right here.
15 Mar 2008 12:32pm
@vu@granby - Wolfgang: Thank you, Wolfgang. Yes, the one with the flowers is the front door. This is the back door whose carving I think isn't quite as good. It's wonderful you remembered.
cool composition and lovely color.

@Hoopand: Perhaps so. Thank you, Hoopand.
I find that the good thing about having a camera is that you get to photograph other people working :-)
15 Mar 2008 6:50pm
@Michael Rawluk: Something we all like to watch. thank you, Michael.
Very nice composition.Good Michael.
15 Mar 2008 7:39pm
@Toño: Thank you so much, Toño.
You must be a visual person, not a cleaning person :), I know people whose greatest pleasure it is to see something getting clean under their hands, and I must say I like also to see the result of my cleaning work :)
15 Mar 2008 8:43pm
@Illuci: Just normal laziness in my case. Thank you, Erik.
Excellent shot. I love the idea!
15 Mar 2008 9:05pm
@standley: Thanks, Standley. I appreciate that.
The tones in this are very much to my liking

Great image, Michael! It seems to convey a great deal to a diverse group of people.. and that's the genius with photography.

@Elisa: Many thanks, Elisa.
I'm with Rhys, it was the door that attracted me - probably due to the lack of such workmanship in the UK.
17 Mar 2008 4:46am
@drphoto: Thank you, Dan. Workmanship here is still reasonably priced.
Great shot....and that door is AWESOME! WOW!
