Why is something as mundane as hanging laundry so photogenic when traveling? At home it wouldn’t get a second glance let alone warrant a photograph. Perhaps the inspiration comes from the environment that frames it, like the narrow cobblestone alleys of Trastevere in Rome, Italy.
Or maybe it’s how these sheets have been artfully hung by the Dhobi Wallahs of Mumbai (Bombay) India.
The necessity of this scene caught my eye.
In an older neighborhood in Shanghai, China someone most likely living in a cramped apartment erected a clothes line across the sidewalk to dry their bed linens.
