Week 19 #22 Laundry


About half way through our River Cruise we left our ship in Passau, Germany to travel by motor coach on a scenic 90 minute drive through the countryside to our days destination Regensburg, Germany. After unloading we walked across Steinerne Brücke, Europe’s oldest surviving bridge, constructed between 1135 and 1146.  It serves as the city’s symbol resting on 16 arches over the Danube. Unfortunately at least 3/4 of the bridge was covered to be cleaned and restored, so I was unable to capture its beauty. While crossing the bridge, lining the shores of the river were numerous buildings painted in light pastel colors. On the balcony of one of the buildings a patch of red caught my eye as we grew closer to the town, I realized someone was tending to their laundry hanging on the railing. Remembering there was a theme for that I quickly started shooting away before he finished gathering it up and headed inside.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  2. Nice catch on seeing the red shirt on the balcony railing. Europe still allows drying of laundry outside, while we don’t in most places.
