Lines could be illustrated in all manner of ways, but I think I’ll show you some washing lines

a washing line hiding in the shade:

Windows and washing, Pitigliano

starkly visible against a white wall:

String of washing, Lucca

…and against a yellow wall:

Yellow wall and washing, Lucca, Italy

…and now for a double line:

Washing lines in Old Havana

  1. I love lines, Sue, and yours are delightful! My favorite is the first one, but the second shot is fun because of the clear shadows.

  2. Great use of washing lines, Sue. They are more interesting than I realised. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I would never dare to display my (holey/holy?) undies like this 😀 Great collection, Sue!

  4. I so love laundry lines, Sue, and these are fabulous!

  5. I can hear the flapping of the sheets and smell the wondrous scent of air-fresh laundry.

  6. hi sue very interesting lines that you have found for the theme I especially like the second and third picture.
    greetings robert

  7. Great response to the challenge. Washing lines provide such a fascinating peek into everyday life. 🙂

  8. I like these buildings. Wonderful photos.

  9. The white wall is my favourite – love those intense shadows!

  10. The Lucca one is fab with it’s shadows on the stark white wall!
