Monday Washing Lines

Back to urban, here’s a line strung under some interesting shutters seen in Lucca, Tuscany – I like the small shutters:

String of washing, Lucca

  1. Oh, aren’t they nice, the little shutters? 🙂 🙂 I have lots of washing, Sue, but it’s mostly a bit dreary.

  2. P.S Your link to Andrew’s doesn’t work? I was just going to hop over there. 🙂

  3. Nice shadows too. Another of my favourite subjects.

  4. There must be a lot more photos of washing lines than I ever realised. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Love the shutters but I love Lucca more – it’s one of my favourite places in Italy. I will go back any time.

  6. Very cute shutters – more the size of a cat flap. And I like those shadows – a great replica of the washing

  7. Different Thought .. Good pic

  8. Shadows make it and of course the colours…… I am of the age when Monday was THE Washing Day. Drying lines draped with a household’s weekly wash. If the weather wasn’t good, mum would moan all day and the house full of clothes, etc drying on racks, in the winter windows steaming up. Now wash day seem to be any old day…sometimes every day. Not sure we would cope with those ‘good old days’ 🙂

  9. I like the shutter and with everything in the background white, it looks as if the entire scene is floating. What fun!

  10. Cute little shutters and love the shadows! I’d love to get to Lucca one day.

  11. That’s great. I like the bleached out background.

  12. Like Debbie i am loving the shadows
