i love the last shot! (they're all really good).

such an interesting depth in that last one, though—and wonderful lighting.

only you could make a sweeper look so beautiful! :)

Happy happy New Year, ELK!

I have a broom like this that I use... My husband was convinced that it was some random Korean wall decoration, until he used it.... then he was hooked... Love the photos & wishing you a great new year too!

Yes, I think I'm going to be using my own broom to clean a rather cluttered house and mind. Great images, too.

Happy new year!

I love how you relate objects and moments with everyday life.....to have that ability to see things in that way is a thing of beauty.
