Laundry day

March 8, 2013

I remember being so indignant when watching Al Gore’s movie, An Inconvenient Truth, with my students in China, and his tip: “Dry clothes on a line when possible,” since my students washed their clothes by hand and will probably never own a dryer. Actually, their responses to the movie were pretty hilarious. After moving to Bosnia, it was a big adjustment for me to factor in an extra day for drying; I was used to washing and drying my clothes in an evening. When I lived in humid, rainy Mostar, drying could take daaaaaays… This summer, there were water cuts in Srebrenica. I never admired clean clothes on a clothesline more. (First photo is from the summer.. the others I took recently.)

    I enjoyed reading your blog post from PIA! It’s so true. I love this set of photos… especially the first shot. It’s beautiful in it’s simplicity, such a great use of colors and shapes. In fact, all the photos have such nice compositions. I’ll be thinking of you when I’m doing laundry this weekend!

    Hanging laundry is so picturesque to me! Do I do it? Unfortunately not.
