Andrew of ‘Have Bag, Will Travel’ is running a weekly challenge all about photographs of washing lines. I knew I had a couple of rather lovely washing lines, but a look through my archives resulted in a few more. This week we are back in Venice, Italy. I like how the darks and lights are hung up separately, but why would you hang a t-shirt in the middle like that? Surely you end up with peg marks? And one slip and the laundry hits the water!
I think this one will appeal to Andrew’s idiosyncrasies.

I reckon all the major camera manufacturers should start thinking about a new dedicated camera feature. Forget ‘Partial Colour’, and ‘Starburst’, they need a ‘Washing Line’ program setting.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Coming to the end of mine now Pete, though I did find one yesterday 😊
They are never going to end… 🙂 x
I might be a bit nervous about any rogue drips from the darks spoiling all the effort that has gone into the whites but overall not a bad job. Good point about the t-shirt which should always be pegged on the seam under the arms.
So you’d peg them the other way round then? 😉
Yes, I think so.
What don’t you agree with?
I peg upside down….always have done
Interesting technique, I might try it!
This is a lovely shot from a little old lady 🙂 🙂 But you were young then! 🙂 🙂 Just teasing!
Oh Jo…you are naughty 😀
Just can’t help myself, Brian 🙄💕
This is why we are so similar Jo 😀
She does push it sometimes Brian, but usually gets away with it. That northern sense of humour – not sure what we can blame for you though!
Less of the little!
Not so much younger, but it does seem like a lifetime ago. A very different lifetime.
You know I love you 🤗💕
Glad someone does 😚
What a saucy minx you are, Jo….
Sorry, Sue 🙄💕
I should think so, too….
Plenty here for Andrew to get his teeth into .. oh, he already has.
Great image, Jude….and old is what I would have objected to…after all, no spring chicken herself…..
She’s young at heart though ❤️
Well, I think we all are!
I’m always amazed at how they manage these lines without losing anything. Or maybe they do, but no-one ever catches it on camera.
You could be right! I am sure I’d drop a sock or two!
What I wonder is how long it takes for them to dry with the humid air rising from the water.
Even with the knowledge that this is Venice, I still did a double take of the juxtaposition of wall & water! The composition is just so whimsical!
Isn’t it amazing how washing lines can look so attractive. As long as they aren’t our own!
I did capture a local one the other day. The trick is to have something else in the photo that is attractive.
