very practical, but how about the acid rain? Cheer Nonoy Manga
You spotted the holes in the tea towel on the far left? I did that. I left some stain remover on it for far too long.
rain water is supposed to be good at softening clothes… seems reasonable to hang things in the rain, maybe with a little suds on them… i’m quite the lazy home maker, so this has great appeal…
Haha! I did actually hand wash this stuff. I hung it on the line it was almost dry and then it got rained on twice.
Love the simplicity of its all
Thanks, Barbara, me too. And I like the colours.
i like those patterned tea towels
I like my tea towels to be green. :)
Nice tea towels!
The one on the far left is so cute. It’s covered in self portraits drawn by school kids, including one of my nephews.
I adore seeing clothes hung out to dry (even if they do end up getting rained on)…in Japan, we did it all the time….now, here in the ‘burbs of Toronto, it seems the only place I see clothes on a line is in those cheesy laundry detergent commercials…until today! Thank you for a most wonderful post :)
Ha ha! I’m glad you like it, Anne. I admit I too like seeing washing on a line. It touches on my liking for collections of things ‘same, same, but different’. I like that there is nothing ‘modern’ or fast about it and I like the smell of things dried in the air too.
I’m curious as to why you don’t see it anymore? Is it forbidden where you live? I believe it is forbidden in some places. Or you don’t have a garden/back yard?
Nope, not forbidden- I think people are just lazy, to be honest. We’ve got a big backyard (though, there isn’t really a good ‘latch up’ place as our main level is elevated and you can ‘walk out’ from our basement to the backyard) When we were in Chicago and then the ‘burbs of Chicago, we had a lovely clothes line that I loved (and it made a great “drying place” for the kids art work too!)
Your kids paintings pegged to a line would make a cool photo!
You’re so right!
I really like the subtle shifts in perspective / framing between these three, S.E…
it’s another series that when viewed / scrolled through leaves me with the impression of motion, or film. In a way it reminds me of NYPD Blue (strange, right)? I mean, how it was filmed (with the camera moving subtly about every now and then rather than being more ‘fixed’)… almost giving the impression that the viewer was actually ‘there’ a part of the scene (if that makes any sense)…
Thanks, Robert! Interesting comment! I’m really itching to make some gifs. And yes, I remember the hand-held camera of NYPD Blue. Gave a more documentary-like feel, a bit chaotic even. These images satisfy my desire to see things ‘same, same, but different’ in two ways – the variety of things hanging on the line and the variety of the shots themselves.
