Rapunzel And Her Sisters by David McMahon

Just four brooms displayed on a shop wall, as a sales inducement.

Yes, they stopped me in my tracks immediately, when I saw this sight in the area of Singapore that is known as “Little India”.

I was trying to find a cab when I saw this wonderful sight. I promptly forgot about hailing a cab and reached for my camera instead.

    A nice blast (of colors)

  • Thanks, Bruce – seeing that on the wall just stopped me in my tracks – and I immediately thought “Rapunzel” …. and realised the other brooms could possibly be her sisters!
