Monday Washing Lines

Seen a long time ago, when I was in my early 20s on my first trip on a plane, to a Greek island….probably my first image of a washing line, and still one of my favourites. My mother even asked for a print…..

Look at that blistering midday sun…. very hot that year, 29 and 30C which I could cope with then but not ideal for getting about!

  1. A lovely line – and dry in ten minutes flat no doubt.

  2. A lovely vibrant washing line.

  3. We always used to go at Spring Bank because it was too hot after that. Happy days! 🙂 🙂

  4. So well composed, both by you and whoever composed the washing line contents 🙂
    And, oh, thoughts of Greece!

  5. ooh I like this, I like it a lot 🙂

  6. Your pic made me smile. Interesting how drying clothes naturally is not a common method in the US.

  7. Definitely the best in all of this challenge, Sue. My personal favourite!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    That is so typical. It could be a picture postcard of any part of Greece. I’m sure you treasure it.

    Beautiful !!!

  10. A lovely photo, the tree is beautiful. This reminds me of washing clothes in an outside sink and hanging them up in a similar yard when we were in Kos in 1978.

  11. This is beautiful, Sue, in its serenity, colors and light.

  12. I love how colorful the homeowner’s clothing was. Here I am afraid you might find much less vibrancy.

  13. Beautifully composed. My first trip on a plane was to a Greek island too, c1987.
