Sweeping the day away

When the kids have gone home, the sand remains: Passing by a window, I saw a person calmly sweeping the floor, presumably in a kindergarten. This snapshot lingered with me as I made my way home.

Walk With Me

What makes pics of your feet / toes out and about so popular? Maybe its the idea of capturing what you see. Perhaps it is the fit for reproduction without much effort on modification. We might also be attracted to the ability of photos (albums) to freeze a place and moment in time.

Objects that Stare

Zero Emissions Car


An unique man-powered urban vehicle spotted at Arabia! Two bicycles attached together with a canvas spanned between to serve as storage. The father rode the bicycle on the ride, but I suspect that it can be steered from either side.
