Something Basic, Something Routine, yet Something Interesting (to Me)

After thinking about my People Watch: Dubrovnik post, I decided to post some of my laundry photos. Traveling to other countries and exploring the neighborhood streets is very inspiring to me. I love it when I see the laundry hanging from the clothes lines. To people who live in these countries, this could be boring and just a standard of living. I see it as if I am stepping into a local’s life. It’s a chance for me to step into someone’s routine and out of my own. This mundane activity brings more color to a building’s facade with various hues and patterned fabrics. In the United States, I don’t see the laundry hanging from city windows so that is why it’s more of a treat for me, as a nonresident. When you come across how a local lives in an unfamiliar country or city, do you find it inspiring?

  1. What I love about this is the fact that these places in the above pictures have not been spoiled by tourism. I find now that cities like Rome and Paris have lost some of their neighborhood characteristics. So it’s very refreshing to see that a tourist can still snap ‘real life’ moments like these 🙂
