#21 It Happens Over Time

You hardly ever see a whisk broom any more; this is the one we used to sweep out the fireplace up at the lake for 50 years and it was already old when we took it out there.  Over time, it has been worn down to its nubs on the rough stone and brick - not very useful any more, but much more character, don't you think?

Very nicely done Tim. I still have one of those whisk brooms somewhere in the house.

yes - agree with you. Love the richness of the colors in the photo.

It almost looks like light painting. Did you?

No, MN - I don't know how to light paint. It was shot in a dark wood shed with light through a small window that highlighted the broom nicely. Higher ISO and wide aperture 3.6 maybe. Tim

This is the same broom you photographed a few years ago which I printed, framed and hung on the Family Room wall after the fire. I love them both but this one has a richness that's alluring. Great one.

Beautiful. What character it has and Oh My...what stories it could tell.
