Brooms in India …..

…brooms might be an unusual topic, yet they are  still an essential tool of cleaning off dust and dirt…

… in our western style of life we might not be any more  aware of the importance of brooms.

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site

    • I love to capture things that might not get much attention until you see it. Thank you Arv for your appreciation , ugh I have to look it up in my travel diary what temple that is.

        I have started doing that as well. But I post such pictures on my Instagram rather than blog unless it relates to some topic I’m writing here. 🙂

  3. Very nice photo essay, Cornelia.

  4. Oooh! Cornelia lately Brooms have been very very popular these days in India as it has been a cleaning issue of the country. I do not know when they shall understand that the country shall be clean unless the mind is, wherein the Broom is not required. 😃
    Brooms have been the livelihood of many in India. Your one of the images shows so many varieties of them.

    • Thank you Shiva, for your thoughts about such an essential, simple and thousands of years old tool to clean up. Indeed as you can see I’ve seen so many brooms in India, like everywhere. I like the texture of brooms. Totally agree with you, that the mind has to be cleaned first.
