@MahGol: Yes, it is an amazing place. Thank you, Mahgol.
J'aime beaucoup cette photo, le porche qui encadre le haut, les couleurs et tout ce linge qui pend... typique scène de la vie quotidienne dans les villes italiennes.

@Evelyne Dubos: Merci beaucoup, Evelyne.,
Hanging out that washing is a way of life for the residents there. Very nice light flooding in on the old buildings, and look at the arm on that street lamp, an artform in itself.

Fabulous Michael, simply fabulous! had to give this shot 5* I love everything about it.

Oooop! sorry Michael, just checked that link, and you can't view the programs any longer, so I've found this link instead :) I hope this works.
19 Jun 2008 10:56am
@MaryB: I started watching the series and it looks excellent. Thanks for the link, Mary.
Five stars for sure - my fascination for laundry is strong and I love your title. "Flapping finery" is perfect!

19 Jun 2008 4:32pm
@Marion: Yes, even the laundry in Venice is photogenic. Many thanks, Marion.
Without any car traffic that definitely makes sense: the laundry keeps clean :-)
19 Jun 2008 5:12pm

thats really interesting. like a scene in a cinema or something...
19 Jun 2008 9:52pm
@Sammi: Very much so. Thank you, Sammi.
Strange how decorative this looks in the right place. Where I live, legal action would be the result of hanging stuff out!
19 Jun 2008 11:55pm
@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you, Ronnie. I guess that's why they look so unusual to some eyes. We are simply not used to seeing laundry hung outside.
I remember sites like this in Sorrento... makes me want to head back...

20 Jun 2008 4:33am
@Niña: Thanks for the really great comment, Niña.
wow! this is a great composition!
21 Jun 2008 1:38am
@Elisa: Thank you, Elisa.
Another great composition! Moreover, a slice of reality...I believe this is real Italy, away from museums and monuments! The Italians are as colourful in character as the laundry they put up to dry!
23 Jun 2008 8:52am
@Japanalia: A great interpretation. I thought the same thing. thanks again.
24 Jun 2008 5:33am
