Where Do You Hang Your Dirty Laundry?

Alright, well techniquely this is clean laundry but somehow dirty laundry sounds more fun.

This is how they do it in Venice, Italy…these photos were taken several years ago when I spent a few days in Venice. I just roamed around all the little alley ways and found it delightful that everyone hung their laundry out to dry like this. I fell in love with it.

There is something so carefree and beautiful about this to me. Maybe it’s my Italian heritage and the fact that I picture my ancestors doing this that warms my heart.

  1. I see that you and I both have the same fascination! Wonderful photographs, I did the exact same thing while I was there! πŸ™‚

  2. Hi,
    Great photos. I think it’s great how people can come up with these ideas, when there is just nowhere to hang their washing, the clothes not only get dry but also aired as well. It would be interesting to know who originally came up with the idea all those years ago. πŸ™‚

  3. Aah, amazing! I’ve only been to Venice briefly once and have been wanting to go back so badly, over the past few weeks I keep on mentioning it. This post just makes me want to go back even more! Beautiful photos, so wonderfully captured, I almost feel like I’m there. Almost.

  4. Beautiful shots! I remember when we went to Venice it was the day they were having their carnival. I wasn’t able to take a lot of good pictures and I was still in basic learning at the time. THanks for visiting my page πŸ™‚ See ya!
