My mother used to have a 'peg bag' like that - you have me trying to remember when I last saw washing hung out to dry like this. It is on a long list of forbidden activities where I live in London now.

This charming photo has evoked pleasure and appreciation for a simple aspect of life we take for granted.

k@ from Paris, France

This is wonderful and so classic, like a pic from the 30's, love its quality, B&W&light and the emotion that comes with it.

29 Mar 2012 6:33am

Nazzareno from Rome, Italy

Superb framing and so beautiful work

lady by the sea from United States

Is this for real, now, REALLY? That looks like home with the clothespin caddy and wrinkled undies. Amazing and in b/w spectacular. How I have missed time to see your art.

Helen from Melbourne, Australia

Nice work. B&W adds to the 'old world' charm

29 Mar 2012 7:20am

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Don't see enough of it these days, too many people have washer/dryers. I remember Mondays when I was a kid, every back lane was festooned with clothes and sheets.

29 Mar 2012 8:45am

Sarah from Suisse, Switzerland

Wow! This looks like something that belongs on the cover of a John Steinbeck novel! Great work, Dulcie!

Susan from Sausalito, United States

Using black and white takes this into an entirely different world.

An everyday scene yet such an exceptional and classic feel to it! Brilliant Dulcie!:-)

Anita from West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States

I like the wrinkled line of undies. The clothespin holder is like the one my mother had. I hang my clothes out to dry, but use a basket to hold the pins.

Ani from Bordeaux, France

I like very much !!! and I like very much shadows too...
