Monday Washing

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 have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

      1. 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!

  3. Great image, Jude….and old is what I would have objected to…after all, no spring chicken herself…..

  4. 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!
