When I look at this image, I think of Leonardo's words,"You need only to look an ponder that the commonplace becomes wondrous and the wondrous commonplace." You've taken a routine scene and made an artist's color palette of it.

Hi Rob,very interesting and original pic.Your picture reminds me of my youth, I had an aunt who was a knitter and often went with her to buy the wool, which was prepared in the store just as you show us. You made me do a nice blast from the past, thanks for letting me relive.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Warm and inspiring photo this. You spotted and used this photo opportunity very well. The colours are lovely and the thoughtful crop created a beautiful and almost abstract image.

Ik kan me deze wolwinkel eigenlijk niet eens echt herinneren, maar alle bolletjes vormen een mooi, kleurig geheel.

Ja wol is weer in, vele jonge mensen zijn opnieuw gaan breien, dit zal wel een rage zijn van een bepaalde tijd.
De zovele kleuren allemaal gestapeld in vakken maakt uw foto aantrekkelijk.
Mooi foto werk, bedankt

I can see what drew you to photograph this as the colours and wooden shelves make a very fine graphic composition. Great fun and well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

I see a vivid burst of colors that incites to feel the softness of those balls of wool, given the easy accessibility!
A feast for the eyes!
Met vriendelijke groeten.

Something from your oldie's, Rob: Attractive every color there is on nature, on display in wool knitting-bundles.
Simple - but I find this very beautiful composition.
