From Kokoro #005 - Life with Broom

When I made this photograph, I had no idea I was so interested in brooms. It wasn't until I discovered them through my keywording that they rose to consciousness as a potential group of images.

What caught my eye with this composition (made in China) was the odd juxtaposition of the bicycle, the broom, and these giant saw blades. I can't even imagine what kind of saw would use these blades, but there they were, just leaning up against the wall in this garage. How do you not make a photograph of such an eclectic combination of items?
