Interesting contrast of the bright colorful plastic with the natural curves of the branch.

I guess this is a modern approach to our old clothes line. It had to be number 9 wire.

Oh, I love this. This is one of those photos that tells a story and needs no words.

I haven't seen any "laundry line" in balconies of apartments in the U.S. yet?

In Iran we just use the washer machine, maybe only in cities. No dryer at all. In villages people still often wash clothes with their hands; a very traditional style.

You reminded me our balcony in our apartment in Mashhad, where my mom hangs up the clothes there once a week. Whenever she hanged up some clothes there, it made our living room dark because they blocked the light. Good days.

Simple, yet redolent of a fine home.
Dina, I SO appreciated your condolence at my blog!
Thanks for the dear Hebrew blessings. Dad took the Yiddish with him.
Hawaiian chanting is similar, but the old words touch my heart deeper....AlohaShalom

Handy to have this tree in your yard! I hang most clothes on the garage door (when it's up) to dry, because I very much dislike ironing:)

Lovely composition, with the harmonious tree and the colored clothes pegs.

I'm glad those cothes pegs don't make it into the oil - I start the day with a spoonful...

PS It is a small floating quay with a parked gangway. I have another picture of it here.

A curved olive tree as its life makes it grow and a straight laundry line with no angle.
Nice picture Dina.
