Photo Hunters : Colorful

photo hunters

Today's topic is Colorful.

Photo taken last year in one of the villages in Sichuan, China. One little gal using the home made mop (several pieces of colorful absorbent fabrics were tied up to form a mop) to mop the wet floor. An useful invention using the available resources. This somehow reminds me of the comfy handmade quilts (stitched by my mum) during my childhood time.

Have a COLORFUL & Fruitful Weekend
