This makes me smile


I love this picture.  I remember wandering the back alleys of Venice (Summer 2008) and coming across this clothes line . . . such beautiful whites and that one pop of color!  I've used this image in several pieces I have sold.  It would be fun to order some more prints and create with it again.

I love this image. No wonder you have used it several times before! Venice is one of the places on my 'must visit one day' list :)

I can see why you love it :-) We're hoping to get to Venice in the next couple of years - now I shall be looking out for washing lines! ;-)

Great photo! A clothesline says so much about a person. We rode out a hurricane, when my children were little, and the power was out for three days and we had to use our clothesline for everything. I wonder what our neighbors learned about our family?

What is it about laundry hanging outdoors? I got a picture in Amish Country of the same and love it. Your pic is great!

It's a beautiful image. I love the fresh white against the faded walls.

Love it. :) That is one of the things I really loved about Italy. I saw the clotheslines in Naples, and with them the stereotypical Italian women leaning out windows shouting to each other across alleys. It was amazing. Thanks for stirring up those memories.

I love this pic. Unfortunately when I was in Venice it was raining and dreary. Great, great shot!
