Laundry day

I'm in love with Fridays in Amish country because that's the day of the week the laundry is hung outside to dry.
I'm attracted to the many colors of dresses, shirts and overalls, towels and wash cloths, sheets and quilts, and even socks on the lines that are strung across large yards under huge trees, from porches and even from barns.
A string of color set against a white farmhouse or a red barn is a pretty picture that I call art.
I've taken hundreds of Amish laundry photographs in Ohio and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Here are my latest photographs taken on June 26, 2015 in and around Mt. Hope, Kidron, Walnut Creek and Sugarcreek, and many points in between.

  1. Fun collection! I'm feeling inspired. I take pictures of outhouses. Not easy to find.

  2. Was writing today and thought of you. Somehow, I missed this entry. Please write more! :)
