Green on Green


Wash day in Menton. An apartment tucked away above roofs in Place aux Herbes.

"After enlightenment, the laundry." ~ Zen proverb.

  1. I ran across a blog awhile ago that featured hanging laundry; wish I could find it again...it was fascinating. There is something so very "human" about that simple act. Love the photo.

  5. Is that really a Zen proverb?!! It is great, as is your photo.

    (Some of my best pictures are of hanging laundry. But usually taken inside monasteries, so I probably should not publish them. You think so?)

  6. Your timing was perfect on this one. It makes me think of the day I spotted a bright lavender house with purple shutters. I looked around to find a place to park to take a photo and about that time, two women emerged from the house, one with a purple blouse and the other with a lavender one. If only I would have had my cameral ready.

  7. I think that new zoom did you proud on this great catch Jilly. I love laundry hanging on a line. I'm just grateful I don't have to do it anymore!!
