a photo a week challenge: nostalgia

Nostalgia, not an easy subject for me. Don’t know why?????!!

What brings back the strongest memories from my childhood that I can explain with the help of my camera is probably the laundry hanging in my grandma’s garden … nearly the whole year around did she hang the laundry outdoors, even in the winter. I have a bit of a fetish for laundry today and Oscar likes it too.

Personal I don’t mind the laundry bit … but I hate the ironing.

“Don’t you just love those 12 seconds
when the laundry is done?”

This image says it all – truly serious laundry hanging …. every piece hangs in colours. Magical!!! Taken in Tbilisi, Georgia – December 2017

“I’m pretty sure my laundry breeds while I sleep.”

My laundry rack on the balcony in Landskrona – June 2018

“I wish my bank account refilled as fast as my laundry basket.”

This is one of my favourite all-time image, borrowed from Miragaia district in Porto – June 2018

“We can land on the moon but we still haven’t
invented a dryer that folds all the clothes.”

Landskrona has Sweden’s oldest and prettiest allotments, that goes back to 1903 – they are approximately 1400 allotments that are divided into six different areas in varied sizes – this laundry was hanging at one of them – May 2016

“Sometimes I feel like throwing in the towel
but that would only mean more laundry for me.”

This image is from Hiroshima, taken from the beautiful Shukkei-en garden – this apartment building was just on the other side of river Enko – April 2015
